While the suspect never showed a weapon, he passed a note to employees implying he was armed. The bank teller handed over cash, as is procedure, and the suspect ran from the scene.

Despite their best efforts, officers from Falls and surrounding municipalities could not locate the suspect. Police Lt. Nelson Whitney thanked Morrisville Borough PD, Lower Makefield PD, the Bridge Commission, Bucks County Rangers, Trenton (NJ) PD and the Pennsylvania State Police for attempting to help.

Surveillance footage shows the alleged individual at large had a full beard, and wore a baseball cap and black shoes with a Nike symbol.

Anyone with information should contact Det. John Vella at j.vella@fallstwp.com or call 215-302-3317.

7-Eleven

On Jun. 1, one day after the PNC Bank heist, a man in a hoodie and blue jeans came into the 7-Eleven on West Trenton Ave around 15 minutes before midnight. The suspect showed a handgun to employees and ran off with an unknown amount of cash.

A video with more information and pictures from the Falls Township Police is available above.
