Police ID, seek pair of bank robbery suspects

CUMRU TWP., Pa. - Police have identified and obtained warrants for the arrests of two suspects in the robbery of a bank in Berks County earlier this month.

The two men, Matthew Hill and Kyle Costello, both of Lancaster, remain at large.

The men teamed up on the afternoon of Nov. 7 to rob the National Penn Bank in the 2200 block of Lancaster Pike in Cumru Township, police said.

Hill, 28, entered the bank first and asked for information about opening an account, said police, adding that he was followed by Costello, 28, who was asked by a teller if he needed assistance. Costello, police said, pulled a handgun from his waist and replied, "Yeah, but give me all the money!"

Both men then fled south on Route 222 in a newer model, brick red sedan with chrome trim around the windows.

Hill's last-known address was in the 500 block of Woodward Street in Lancaster; Costello was last known to live in the 300 block of Beaver Street, police said.

Police have obtained warrants for the arrests of both men on charges of robbery, theft and related offenses, said police, adding that they should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Hill and Costello is asked to call Crime Alert Berks County at 877-373-9913. A cash reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
