Sheriff’s staff responded to a reported armed bank robbery at the Lively branch of the Chesapeake Bank around 11:20 a.m. Wednesday. Bank employees provided a description of the suspect and the suspect’s vehicle, which was intercepted without incident near Mary Ball and Merry Point Roads at about 11:30 a.m., said Shirilla.

The suspect’s vehicle was seized and taken to the sheriff’s office for processing in connection with the case. No information is available at this time as to the amount of money reported stolen or recovered in the case.

Bank staff immediately closed the bank, which was cordoned off by deputies until 12:30 p.m., said Shirilla. John O’Shaunessy, executive vice president, arrived about noon and explained the bank would remain closed for the remainder of the day pending an internal audit.

Although shaken, no bank employees were injured during the reported robbery, according to Shirilla.
