Castle Shannon police, FBI searching for suspected bank robber
Federal and local authorities on Monday asked for help in identifying a man suspected of robbing a Castle Shannon bank last week.
The robbery happened at about 1:30 p.m. April 29 at the Dollar Bank on Castle Shannon Boulevard, according to Castle Shannon police Chief Kenneth Truver.
Investigators said the male suspect ran into the bank, across the foyer and straight to the counter, which he jumped over. He took cash from a drawer and then ran back out the door.
Police said no one was injured, and the man did not show a weapon.
Port Authority surveillance cameras near Mt. Lebanon Boulevard showed the suspect took the light-rail train to the area, police said. He got off at the Arlington stop, walked across Cooke Drive and loitered there for a few minutes before he ran into the bank, Truver said.
When the suspect ran out of the bank, he went back across Mt. Lebanon Boulevard and behind some businesses toward Castle Shannon Boulevard, Truver said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Pittsburgh FBI office at 412-432-4000 or Castle Shannon police by dialing 911.
