Bank closed; would-be robber leaves empty-handed

HEIDELBERG TWP., Pa. - A man's apparent plans to rob a bank in Lebanon County were thwarted by a locked door.

The would-be robber walked into the vestibule of the Fulton Bank, 1374 Heidelberg Ave., also designated as Route 897, in Heidelberg Township, around 9:20 a.m. Friday and put on a black mask, state police said.

That's as far as he got, however, because the bank was closed, according to police.

The man, wearing a gray sweat suit and standing between five feet, 10 inches and six feet tall, turned around and walked off empty-handed.

Anyone with information that can help police identify the would-be robber is asked to contact state police at Jonestown at 717-865-2194.
