The FBI in Baltimore is looking to ID bank robbery suspects it has dubbed the "Mod Squad" who attempted to rob a Pikesville branch Saturday.
PIKESVILLE, MD — The FBI is investigating 12 bank robberies over the past three months that authorities believe are linked to one group. On Saturday, the suspects tried unsuccessfully to rob a bank in Pikesville around noon before successfully robbing a bank in Baltimore City about two hours later, officials said.
There is a reward for information about the four suspects, who investigators have dubbed the "Mod Squad" because, according to the FBI, it's a "younger crew that uses a variety of clothing styles and sunglasses" to conceal their identities.

- Essex: April 8
- Parkville: April 8
- Owings Mills: April 11
- Pikesville: April 11 and attempt on June 15
- Catonsville: June 12

In the robberies, officials said that one would act as a lookout in the bank while another would go up to the teller, present a note with the demand for money and leave with cash in a variety of vehicles.
There are two women and two men in the robbery crew, according to the FBI:
- Heavy black woman in her mid 20s to mid 30s, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall
