Original release (April 13, 2016  2:55 p.m.):

At 11:19 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police responded to the First Mariner Bank at Loch Raven Boulevard and Joppa Road for a robbery.

An officer in an unmarked car searching for suspects observed a suspicious vehicle in the area of Loch Raven Boulevard and I-695. That vehicle was driving in a suspicious manner and possibly trying to be evasive. The officer followed the vehicle onto I-695 and to Providence Road.

When marked units tried to stop the vehicle on Providence Road, the vehicle fled from police and traveled to Towson Center Mall where the occupants exited the vehicle and fled on foot. An adult female was quickly apprehended but an adult male made it into the mall. Police set up a perimeter around the mall and called in additional resources to help search for the man.

The male from the suspicious vehicle was later located hiding in the back seat of another vehicle being driven by an adult male.

A total of three people were taken into custody and police are not looking for anyone else. There is no danger to anyone in or near the mall.

Further investigation has indicated that the suspects taken into custody were not responsible for the bank robbery but detectives are continuing to investigate.

During the incident a police vehicle was involved in a crash that resulted in minor injuries.
