A manhunt for an Adams County man wanted in an armed bank robbery.  It happened at about 10:53 am this morning at the Adams County National Bank along the 400 block of West King Street in Littlestown Borough.

Police Chief Charles Kellar said the suspect walked into the bank and handed a teller a note indicating he had a gun in his pocket and to do as the note said and empty the cash drawer.  The teller did as instructed. The suspect then ran away.

Chief Kellar also said thanks to bank surveillance cameras, and police records, the suspect was quickly identified as Ryan Palmer, 23, of 23 South Queen Street, Littlestown.

Palmer should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.  Anyone who may know of Palmer’s whereabouts is asked to contact police.  Littlestown Police were assisted in the investigation by Pennsylvania State Police.

    This fool has to be desiring to go to prison where it is warm and food a-plenty. Robbing a bank in his own small town, showing his face as plain as day. If he really thought he was going to get away with it without ever getting caught in the next potential 50-60 years of his life, he is too stupid to be in society.
