Fake-beard-wearing bandits rob Bucks bank at gunpoint

FBI Philadelphia Division

Investigators are looking for two men who donned fake beards and held up a Southampton bank at gunpoint this morning.

Police said the robbery took place shortly before 11:15 a.m. at the TD Bank branch at 1110 Street Rd. The two men entered the lobby with a weapon drawn and demanded money, according to investigators. 

Police said the suspects made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. They were last seen driving west on Street Road in a gray Dodge SUV with New York tags, according to authorities.

Both suspects are described as 5-foot-10-inch-tall black males in their mid-20s sporting fake red beards and gray latex gloves. 

One suspect was wearing a dark-colored zip-front New York Yankees sweatshirt and carrying a small black handgun. The second suspect was wearing a light-colored zip-front True Religion-brand sweatshirt turned inside out.

Anyone with information about the suspects or crime is asked to call the Upper Southampton Township Police Department at 215-364-5000, ext. 117, or to contact the FBI at 215-641-8910. Officials said there may be a reward for information leading to the suspects’ arrests.
