Bank Robbery

On Friday, August 14, 2009, at 10:13 am officers from the Martinsburg Police Department responded to the Mountain Heritage Federal Credit Union, located within the Martinsburg Mall in regards to a bank robbery that had just occurred.

From speaking with witnesses, it was advised that a black male wearing dark clothing, sunglasses and a red baseball style hat with a P emblem (Philadelphia Phillies hat), approached a teller and passed a note demanding money, while also advising verbally that he was armed with a firearm. The suspect produced two separate bags and took an undisclosed amount of currency from two tellers before leaving the bank. Witnesses also observed the suspect enter an awaiting dark in color sedan that was being driven by a second black male before leaving the area.

The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 5’7, mid 20’s to mid 30’s in age and was wearing a dark t-shirt, dark pants, sunglasses and a red Philadelphia Phillies hat. It is also believed that possibly this suspect is the same person who had committed a robbery at the same bank in May of 2009.

This incident is being investigated by members of the Martinsburg Police Department and the FBI. Anyone with information regarding this robbery are urged to contact Lt. G.B. Swartwood or Det. S.F. Doyle at 304-264-2100 or Crime Solvers at 304-267-4999.
