Original post: The Cambridge Police Department is looking for a suspect who they say attempted to rob a bank and then stole a truck Monday afternoon.

According to police, officers responded to the 1880 Bank in the 300 block of High Street shortly after 2:30 PM to reports of a suspect passing a note to a teller demanding money. Police say the man never displayed a weapon and fled the bank without money.

A short time later, police received a call that a Chevrolet truck was stolen from the Pep-Up in the 200 block of Hayward Street. Officers reviewed surveillance video footage from both the bank and the Pep-Up and determined it was the same suspect in both incidents.

Police describe the suspect as a white man in his late 40s to mid 50s with a gray beard. He was wearing a tan baseball cap, an orange jacket and blue pants.

The stolen Chevy truck is described as a 2016 model, red, with Pep-Up emblems on the side and a Delaware tag numbered "CL35623."

Anyone with information on the suspect or stolen truck is asked to call Cambridge Police at 410-228-3333.
