Hatboro TD Bank Robbed

The FBI confirmed the Hatboro branch of TD Bank had been robbed on Friday.

Local and federal authorities are seeking a gun-wielding suspect said to have robbed the Hatboro branch of TD Bank Friday afternoon.

J.J. Klaver, a supervisory special agent with the FBI's Philadelphia office said the robbery occurred at about 2 p.m. and that authorities were seeking the suspect, described as a white male, about 50 years old, approximately 6' tall, with a medium build, who was captured on surveillance images.

The Hatboro Police Department and the FBI are seeking the public's assistance to identify and locate the man responsible for the bank robbery, which occurred at the Hatboro branch, 256 South York Road.

Authorities said the suspect entered the bank armed with a handgun. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the subject fled the area in a tan SUV. He was last seen driving south on York Road.

He wore a dark ski mask and gloves, a dark jacket with light-colored hood and sleeves, light-colored pants, and white sneakers during the robbery. He took the money in a black gym bag with white trim, authorities said. 

More than two hours after the robbery, at just after 4 p.m., yellow police caution tape hung in the front entrance of the bank, preventing vehicle access.

Hatboro Police Chief James Gardner said the suspected get-away was recovered shortly after the incident in the Blair Mill Village East Apartments. Police are asking anyone who may have seen someone near the vehicle to contact Hatboro Police or the FBI Fort Washington Field Office. The vehicle had been reported stolen to Horsham Police earlier Friday morning, Gardner said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or the Hatboro Police Department at 215-675-2832. This subject should be considered armed and dangerous. There may be a reward for information leading to this subject's capture; tipsters can remain anonymous.

A very nice lady who works there told me they hope to re-open around 5:00 tonight after the police wrap up their investigation.

Is there an alarming increase in bank robberies in Hatboro and Horsham Townships in the last year or is it me?

Some people steal condoms. Some people steal money.

Oh. My. God, the neighborhood is turning. First the Northeast and now East Montco? Quick, everyone, move to Lancaster.

This is a sign of the times. Hatboro is still a safe place to live, work and go to school.

Curious, why is the TD bank the only bank they hit? This is like the 2nd time in 1 or 2 yrs. Hatboro Federal must have better security for them to not ever be hit (atleast I don't remember any other bank in hatboro to be robbed). HHMmmmm.

Scary sign of the times. Glad no one wasphysically injured.

ha! I suspect it's more a sign of the times than of the geography. Folks are desperate, and therefore ballsy. And you have to be ballsy to rob a bank, because it's a federal crime that comes with a hefty penalty. Yikes. When I read that the car was recovered at Blair Mill Apartments I had a hilarious vision of the gunman driving up to his own apartment, casually getting out, and going inside. To make a sandwich or something. With a bag full o' money.
