A man wearing a camouflage jacket and armed with a gun ordered three tellers to place money in a canvas bag.
Allegheny County Police Det. Steven Dish said, “The bag was found a short distance from the bank. It was thrown over a guardrail next to a parking lot, and it was discovered that the dye pack had exploded in the bag.”
Last November, a man wearing a dark-colored hoodie walked into the same Huntington Bank carrying a canvas bag and a blue plastic bag.
“He stated he was there to rob the bank and that he had a bomb, and he was holding some sort of an electronic device in his hand,” Det. Dish said.
The suspect put the money in the bag and then fled.READ MORE: PHOTO GALLERY: Winter Storm System Moves Into Pittsburgh Area
