The PNC Bank branch located inside of Warminster was robbed Wednesday afternoon, causing the supermarket to close for about an hour as police investigated the scene.

At approximately 1:30 p.m., the robber entered the bank brandishing a weapon and presenting a threatening demand note to the teller. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, he fled the bank in what authorities believe to be a light silver or gold sedan with a rounded back.

The FBI describes the suspect as a white male, late 40s to early 50s, 5’6” tall, with dark hair and mustache. He was wearing a tan baseball-style cap and a dark jacket. He may also be responsible for bank robberies that occurred earlier in the month in Marlton, N.J., and in Bethlehem.

The FBI is seeking the public’s assistance to locate and identify the suspect. He is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call the Warminster Police Department at 215-443-5000 or the FBI at (215) 418-4000. There may be a reward for information leading to this subject’s capture, and tipsters may remain anonymous.
