Pa. man arrested in Hagerstown credit-union robbery


Edwin Charles Hoerner of Shiremanstown, Pa., a community southwest of Harrisburg, was taken into custody at his home on Wednesday, Hagerstown Police Department spokeswoman Heather Aleshire said in a news release.


City police investigating a Dec. 2 robbery at the Bulldog Federal Credit Union in Hagerstown said Wednesday that a 53-year-old Pennsylvania man has been arrested in the case with help from multiple law-enforcement agencies.

Edwin Charles Hoerner of Shiremanstown, Pa., a community southwest of Harrisburg, was taken into custody at his home on Wednesday, Hagerstown Police Department spokeswoman Heather Aleshire said in a news release.

Hoerner, who is awaiting extradition back to Maryland, is charged with armed robbery, first- and second-degree robbery, assault, reckless endangerment, theft over $1,000, felon in possession of a handgun and other related handgun charges, according to the release.

During the course of the investigation into the robbery at the Bulldog Federal Credit Union on Garland Groh Boulevard, a similar bank robbery occurred in Westminster, Md., the release said.

Law-enforcement agencies worked together and were able to identify a suspect who lived in Shiremanstown, police said.

Detectives from the Hagerstown and Westminster Police departments, with assistance from the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, Pennsylvania State Police and a Pennsylvania State Police SERT Team, executed a search and seizure warrant at Hoerner's residence, the release said.

Hoerner was taken into custody without incident, police said.

The robbery occurred at about 1:25 p.m. on Dec. 2, when a masked white man wearing tan pants, a tan jacket and dark boots entered the credit union and fired a shot into the floor, police said.

The robber was given an undisclosed amount of cash before he fled north in a newer-model silver Nissan Sentra.

Police said the vehicle had no front tag, just an empty black tag holder where the front license plate should be.

The credit union offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
