PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. (WJLA) - Prince George's County police said Thursday they believe a man who robbed an Upper Marlboro bank on Tuesday may have also committed several other local robberies.

On Tuesday, April 8, a male suspect entered a Bank of America in Upper Marlboro. He is suspected 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.

Prince George's County police posted the above video of the robbery on their YouTube page Thursday.

On Thursday, police said they believe the man may have also robbed the following businesses in the southern region of Prince George's County:
