Man Arrested In Connection With Tuesday Morning Bank Robbery

The M&T Bank branch on Harford Road in Parkville was robbed Tuesday morning.

Police have arrested a man they say is responsible for a bank robbery in the Parkville area Tuesday morning.

David Weglein Jr., 20, of no fixed address, has been charged with robbery and theft between $1,000 and $10,000 in connection with the incident, according to Baltimore County Police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathleen Batton. 

He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $100,000 bond.

Weglein allegedly entered the M&T Bank branch in the 8200 block of Harford Road around 9 a.m. Nov. 13 and passed a note to a teller working there. The teller gave the robber money and he fled, according to Batton.

The robber never displayed any sort of weapon during the incident, Batton said.

Weglein was arrested around 10:25 a.m., after police officers spotted him walking along Taylor Avenue.

The injury to Weglein's face was not sustained in the course of his arrest.

"He was arrested without incident," Batton said. "Employees described those injuries in their suspect description for the robbery."

Although the injuries were included in witness reports, they were not part of the suspect description released to the media.

On Facebook, a reader noticed that Patch has written about Weglein before. Back in July 2011, he was arrested and charged in connection with a series of car break-ins on Woodside Avenue.

Thanks to Stephanie Biles McHugh for pointing out the previous story.

On Wednesday, police said that the bank robbery Tuesday morning was apparently not connected to a possible armed robbery and shooting that occurred nearby Tuesday afternoon.

There has been no update from police on the Tuesday afternoon shooting.

He has a string of violations going back through 2011 and 2010 besides the July 2011 one - about every 2 months like clockwork. And if anyone is interested, look up all the cases for David Weglein, Sr. at http://casesearch.courts.state.md.us/inquiry/processDisclaimer.jis
