MVB Bank Robbery
To whom it may concern,
On this date officers from our agency responded to the MVB Bank, located at 704 Foxcroft Ave, in reference to a robbery which had just occurred. Our agency received 911 call at aprox 0943 am. Officers were on scene almost immediately.
Upon speaking to employees at the bank the following is a synopsis of what took place. A male entered the bank and approached two of the bank tellers at their counter. He demanded that they remove money from their register drawers and place it into a bag. He gave specific instructions as to how to do so.
The male then directed the tellers back to the vault area where he instructed them to turn over more money to him. The male displayed a firearm, believed to be a silver revolver. He then left the bank in an unknown direction.
The male was described as being heavily clothed. He was believed to be a white male. He was believed to be wearing a dark green in color jacket with the hood pulled up. He had on a black ski mask and gloves. He also had on dark colored pants and some type of athletic shoes. The male obtained an undisclosed amount of money at this time.
This investigation is actively ongoing. Anyone with any information in regards to this investigation is urged to contact the Martinsburg Police Department (304 264 2100) and / or the Berkeley County Crime solvers Tip line (304 267 4999). Thank you for your time and consideration of this matter.
