MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WDVM) — An arrest has been made for an armed robbery of a Sandy Spring Bank that occurred in Montgomery Village back in 2017.

Raul Gerardo Castro, 32, of Gaithersburg was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery.

In June of 2017, Castro allegedly entered the bank, approached the teller and passed a note demanding money and implying he had a weapon. The suspect fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Detectives released a photograph following the incident and two years later received a tip from the public which led to the identification of Castro as the suspect.

Castro was released after posting a $20,000 bond.
