County police are still searching for two men connected to an armed robbery in Landover whose images were found on a surveillance camera.

Police said about 9:35 a.m., two men wearing ski masks robbed the Wachovia Bank in the 7700 block of Landover Road, one acting as a lookout while the second threatened three employees with a handgun and asked for money. No customers were inside the bank at the time of the robbery and no employees were harmed during the robbery.

Police said the two men fled the scene in a 1996 green Plymouth Voyager minivan with Washington, D.C., tags that was recovered a few blocks away on 75th Avenue in Landover. Police spokesman Henry Tippett said the van was reported stolen Jan. 28 from Washington, D.C.

Both men are described as black males in their 30s, wearing black ski masks and weighing approximately 150 pounds. Police said the male who displayed the weapon is about 5’7” and was last seen wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt, dark blue jeans, black gloves and had a black handgun. The second male acting as lookout is about 5’8” with light complexion and last seen wearing a green cap, a green hooded sweatshirt and yellow or tan pants with a handgun in his waistband.

Police are asking residents with additional information to call the county’s Robbery Unit at 301-772-4905 or Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS to remain anonymous. A cash reward will go to the tip leading to an arrest.
