Police say Tuesday morning, a man walked into the M&T Bank on Flower Hill Way in Gaithersburg inquiring about his account.

"The teller asked him for an ID and there was some exchange of words," said Shiera Goff, Montgomery Co. Police spokeswoman. "He told her he would be back and then around 11:30 a.m., he returned."

This time police say he brought a bag, a gun, and a demand for cash.

While he came in looking for green, he left seeing red. Goff said one of the tellers slipped him money with a dye pack that exploded outside. Police radio traffic indicates there was "money all over the street."

"We are looking for someone who may have cash with red ink on it, and he may possibly have red ink on his person as well," said Goff.

Montgomery County investigators are also searching for another man who robbed a Capital One bank on Georgia Ave. in Silver Spring at around 3 p.m. Tuesday.
