An off-duty Baltimore County Police officer caught a bank robber in the act yesterday, only to later discover he was wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Baltimore, Maryland Field Office for numerous bank robberies across the region.

Officer E. Legge of the Woodlawn Precinct (PC2) was inside Bank of America in the 7900 block of Honeygo Boulevard in Perry Hall yesterday when a man walked up to the teller station next to him and placed a backpack on the counter. Moments later the man left the bank with the backpack and the teller announced she'd just been robbed.
