Alleged robbery: Fairview Township Police said in a news release that Sharkey entered the bank at 132 Old York Road just before 4 p.m. and presented the bank teller with a note that demanded large-denomination bills.

"Make this simple, don't argue," he said to the teller when giving her the note, charging documents state. 

The teller gave him an undisclosed amount of money, and the man left in the direction of the Giant Food Store plaza, police said. Charging documents indicate Sharkey made off with between $1,000 and $2,000. 

Two people also saw him walking toward the Subway, the release states.

Sharkey did not display a weapon, and no one was hurt in the incident, according to authorities.

Investigation: Township Detective Jason Lotier viewed surveillance footage from the incident and immediately recognized the suspect as the same person who was wanted in connection with a Cumberland County bank robbery, officials said.

West Shore Regional Police say Sharkey robbed a Members 1st Federal Credit Union at 325 S. 10th St. in Lemoyne the afternoon of Aug. 17. 

Sharkey was arraigned on his Cumberland County charges Thursday morning. He remains in Cumberland County Prison in lieu of $125,000 bail.

He does not have an attorney listed.
