Bank Robbery Suspect Eludes Police In Resort
OCEAN CITY — Ocean City Police on Thursday were still seeking a suspect wanted in connection with the robbery of the Susquehanna Bank on 94th Street early Wednesday morning amid new information that appears to indicate the suspect was in no hurry to flee the scene.
Around 10 a.m. on Wednesday, an unidentified suspect walked into the Susquehanna Bank on 94th Street and demanded money, received an undisclosed amount of cash and then casually walked back to his awaiting vehicle blocks away.
According to an update provided by the OCPD, it now appears the suspect parked his vehicle in the area of West Biscayne Drive and Arctic Ave. in the nearby Little Salisbury neighborhood and approached the Susquehanna Bank on foot.
