MONTGOMERY CO. – A man is facing charges after police say he robbed the same bank twice in Wheaton.

Michael J. Suah, 22, of Wheaton, robbed the PNC Bank located inside a Giant Food grocery store at the 2900 block of University Boulevard West, police say.

Police say the first robbery was on November 15, 2017. Suah handed a bank teller a note demanding money. Suah took the cash and fled from the bank.

The second robbery happened on April 13. Police say Suah again handed a bank teller a note demanding money, took the cash, and fled.

Police released a surveillance photo of Suah last month and asked for the public’s help identifying him.

On Tuesday, while an officer was conducting a traffic stop, police say the officer saw Suah walking in the area. The officer stopped Suah and arrested him.

Suah was released on a $10,000 bond.

Police say Suah is charged with two counts of robbery and theft.
