Police: Perry Hall Carrollton Bank Robbed

The bank at Schroeder Avenue and Belair Road was robbed Saturday morning.

The Perry Hall was robbed at about 10:50 a.m. Saturday, police said.

A man entered the bank on the 4000 block of Schroeder Avenue, at the corner of Belair Road, and handed a note—which demanded cash and implied he had a weapon—to a teller, according to Cpl. John Wachter, a Baltimore County police spokesman.

The man then stole an undisclosed amount of cash and left the scene in an unknown direction, Wachter said.

No one was injured during the robbery and police have not yet released a description of the suspect, he said. Investigators remained on the scene into the afternoon.

A —where a man implied he had a gun in a note—was reported on Jan. 23 at the bank, about 3.5 miles north of Saturday's incident.

Emily, at least there was a quick release by BC police on this one. Thanks for getting it up quickly. Now for step 2, give the public the video showing who it was. The cameras were rolling! C'mon man, how do you expect the public to help? Looks like an epidemic!

Its depressing how many judges respond to the "REPEAT OFFENDER PROBLEM" by saying "Our jails are full". My reponse is build more jails

Build more jails and put them to work on the road repairs.

Marty, as good as that sounds, honestly it is pointless. Just putting these offenders in jail is not going to solve the problem. These men and women need reform. With the economy being as bad as it is, you are going to see more and more of these kinds of crimes committed. The jails are overcrowded and something seriously needs to be done. Stop throwing the small time drug dealers in jail and go after the big guys. The small time drug dealers should be forced into a mandatory inpatient drug rehab. It could be set up like a jail, where they couldn't leave until they are done the program, but just putting them in jail, feeding them, and letting them stew in a jail cell is not the answer. It's a known fact that a very large percentage of criminals, especially drug users are back in jail in less than one year of their release. Our prison systems are a joke and crooked as hell. I am in college right now obtaining a degree in Cyber Security and I can tell you from what I have learned already the jails and prisons are going to get worse and worse and worse, unless something drastic takes place. Also these criminals should be put to work, just like the olden days. Sitting around all day rotting in a jail cell is not paying back the community that this criminal disrupted. This is just my opinion and I do not expect everyone to agree with me.

Here comes the know-it-all, now an expert on corrections. Karen B, can you ever say anything positive?

Personally I don't see jail being "jail" anymore. In fact I have discussed this with friends. It is almost a treat to go to jail for many. Free housing, free food, free education, free gym, free tv. They have it better in jail then many people have being good citizens on the street. We need to start treating law breakers as criminals and not rescue puppies. Jails are crowded. Tough crap!

Interesting statistics, we have 5% of the world population and 25% of the world's incarcerated population. We also have the world's highest rate of incarceration on a per capita basis. Hmmm. Just sayin'.

as does the trolling from someone clearly jealous he left.
Andrea January 30, 2012 at 02:33 PM
I was thinking the same thing coming from someone who has been in the banking industry for 21 years. It would be nice to have a picture of the person so we can inform our tellers/branches to be on the look out.

Paul, Maybe we have 25% of the world's incarcerated population because the prisoners in SOME other countries ARE KILLED AND TORTURED.
Paul Amirault January 30, 2012 at 02:36 PM
In all honesty it probably has to do with our war on drugs.
LalainMaryland January 31, 2012 at 10:35 AM
Paul So we should not fight drugs?!?
Paul Amirault January 31, 2012 at 11:29 AM
There is somewhat a radical position (supported by Ron Paul) that theorizest that the war on drugs has resulted in a higher cost of illegal drugs thus increasing the profit motive for criminals. The concept is if they were legal, there would be less crime. Then drug use would be treated as a health problem. Interesting concept, but would never pass in the US. My original point was we have a high prison population due to illegal drugs. I believe our average length of incarceration is also longer than other countries.

Why am I a know it all? I'm sorry if I am educated on this issue. Does that bother you? It's the truth, and it has nothing to do with being pessimistic or optimistic. It is what it is. If you think you have all the answers, than I would like to see you do something about it. You sound like a very uneducated individual to make a statement like that. Did you READ I SAID this is just my opinion? If you cannot except that, than don't come to the patch and pass you opinion. Grow up !!

The only collosal waste of money bigger then the 'war on drugs' at home, was the war on drugs in the "Middle East". All Republican fueled. It's a funny thing about many Republicans. They don't want to spend money - unless it's on military overkill. It's not that spending money on educating people about drugs is a bad thing... Oh wait, now I'm reading Paul's comment below this and he's covering most of what else I was going to say. It's also why I would fully support the legalization of recreational amounts of marijuana. The government is missing the boat on an economic gold mine here. Make pot legal, regulated, and tax it like alcohol. There'll be a massive pothead stage in this country that'll last maybe 5 years or so. Then it'll level off and be no worse then alcohol. In fact, most would argue pot causes less aggression/violence then alcohol. There's an actual case study of this in Portugal I read about a year ago. PS: I've never smoked pot in my life, or tobacco in any form.
