Neighbors Uneasy After Vienna Bank Robbery

Posted:
VIENNA, Md. - Police are asking for the public's help in solving Wednesday's daytime bank robbery. Thursday it was business as usual at the Hebron Savings Bank in Vienna on Thursday.  24 hours earlier, it was a different story as Maryland State Police say three men wearing masks and armed with hand guns robbed the bank on Market Street.  The robbery in the small town has neighbors on edge.

Delphine Gaines lives just down the street and described the scene.

"Two state troopers, three plain clothes men, one sheriff, and other were steadily coming.  As I was going to my appointment to the doctor's, they were steadily coming to Vienna," said Gaines.

State Police say the three armed men robbed the bank around 11:30 Wednesday morning and made off with an undisclosed amount of money.  Police said there is no word on which direction the suspects fled in.

Gaines said she has lived in Vienna all her life and said it is concerning not only to have the robbery a few hundred yards from home, but in her small town in general.

The robbers had a chance to get away, I mean there are all different directions to go.  It's really scary.  There could have been a bad turnout.  Could have been a shootout.  We could have been quarantined in our homes," said Gaines.

Sally Snider lives just two doors down from the bank and cannot understand why something like a robbery would happen in Vienna.

"It doesn't make you feel very comfortable but it doesn't really scare me.  I think it's sort of strange that somebody would want to go to jail for robbing such a little bank," said Snider.

Neighbors agree.  A big crime in a small town was very much out of the ordinary.
