RISING SUN, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say a Delaware man held up a bank in Rising Sun while dressed as a woman.

Police charged 34-year-old Kent Buckson of Bear on Thursday with armed robbery of a National Penn Bank branch involving a theft of less than $10,000.

Buckson was in custody Friday and couldn't' be reached for comment.

Tellers told investigators the robber entered the bank Wednesday afternoon wearing a dress, a turtle-neck sweater and a wig. The suspect presented a note demanding cash and threatening to shoot the bank employees but didn't display a gun.

Police say Buckson is suspected in four other bank robberies in Delaware and Pennsylvania committed by a culprit in women's clothing. They say he also is suspected in heists at eight convenience stores in the three states.
