WEST OCEAN CITY, Md. - Police have arrested two men in connection with Tuesday's robbery of a West Ocean City bank.

Maryland State Police say they arrested 36-year-old Heath Derizzo, who was in the surveillance photos, and 35-year-old Dale Mentzer, both of Pennsylvania. Both men were wanted in Pennsylvania, and are facing additional charges there, including other robberies, according to authorities.

Police say the two suspects were located around 10:00 PM on Tuesday, at a motel in Salisbury, and were taken into custody. MSP reportedly searched the motel room, and vehicle, and investigators are looking over the evidence that was collected. The investigation is still on-going.

Derizzo and Mentzer are being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center on the Pennsylvania warrants at this time, and will reportedly be charged in connection to Tuesday's PNC Bank robbery, Wednesday afternoon.

Police believe all the suspects involved are in custody, and aren't part of a larger group. They also want to make clear, that they don't think that Tuesday's PNC Bank robbery and Wednesday's Susquehanna Bank robbery, are related.

The investigation stems from an incident on Tuesday morning, when Derizzo, reportedly walked into the PNC Bank in West Ocean City, around 9:10 AM, and demanded money. The suspect fled without any money, according to the report.
