According to a spokesperson for Prince George's County police, a preliminary investigation indicates that one person entered the bank, though it is unknown at this time whether a second suspect may have also been involved.

The male suspect is believed to have had a handgun, which he displayed when he demanded money from a bank employee.

The employee complied, and the suspect fled the bank with an unknown amount of money.

Police said they believe the suspect then got into an older-model gray station wagon and drove away.

Somehow, money started flying out the window as the car sped away from the scene. Police said they are not sure if the money was being thrown or if  the dye pack possibly exploded.

There were no injuries reported, and police said no shots were fired.

Prince George's County police released a security camera photo of the suspect, and are asking the public's help in identifying him. Anyone who thinks they may have any information is asked to call 1-866-411-TIPS.
