    He fled the scene in an older model gray station wagon with an undisclosed amount of cash. A dye bag with the cash exploded, and money flew out of the car, the Associated Press reported. Officers recovered the money.

    Money stained with red dye could be seen scattered in parts of the parking lot, News4's Tracee Wilkins reported.

    Just a day before the bank robbery, police believe the suspect robbed a Radio Shack and a 7-Eleven on Livingston Road. He robbed a nearby Aldi Foods store on April 3 around 8:15 p.m. Police believe the man is also responsible for a robbery at the Maxway in the 4200 block of Branch Avenue at about 9 p.m. March 28.

    The suspect is 5'8" tall, weighs between 150 and 170 pounds and has a medium complexion. Police believe he's in his 40s. During Wednesday's robbery, he was last seen wearing a black leather hat, a black jacket, a burgundy shirt and blue jeans. His left eye was covered by some sort of patch.

    Anyone with information regarding any of the robberies should call police at 301-772-4905.
