SALISBURY, Md.- Two women were arrested and charged as a result of an attempted robbery of the Shore Bank in Salisbury. 

Salisbury police said that at around 10 a.m. Friday, April 15, officers responded to an attempted robbery at the Shore Bank located at 1503 South Salisbury Blvd. Bank employees told police that an unmasked suspect came into the bank, displayed a note and demanded cash. Police said the employee did not give the suspect any cash and the suspect left the scene. 

Investigators from the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit conducted a track but were unable to locate the suspect. Upon reviewing bank surveillance footage and surveillance footage from surrounding businesses, police said they were able to determine that there were two suspects involved. Police said the suspect who entered the bank got into the passenger's seat of a vehicle that parked within the University Park parking lot before the robbery. 

Police said investigators were able to identify the vehicle used as the getaway car and located it on the 400 block of Naylor Street a short time later. The driver, Emily Paige Skelton, 26, of Salisbury and the passenger, Carin Delores Purcell, 29, of Salisbury, were arrested without incident while they were still inside the car. 

Purcell and Skelton were transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center where they are being held pending an initial court appearance. Police carried out search and seizure warrants which led to the collection of additional evidence related to the incident. 

The investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3113 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
