On September 25 at approximately 1:32 p.m., officers responded to the Sandy Spring Bank located at 908 Olney Sandy Spring Road for the report of a bank robbery.  Investigation revealed that a suspect, later identified as Dodd, entered the bank and passed a note demanding money.  She received an undisclosed amount of cash and ran from the bank.  A witness observed Dodd enter a waiting vehicle and provided a description of the getaway driver.

Investigators from the Carroll County Sheriff's Office communicated with Montgomery County Police robbery detectives and provided Dodd's name as a possible suspect.  The Carroll County Sheriff's Office had obtained a warrant for Dodd's arrest for committing two bank robberies in their county.

Montgomery County Police detectives transported Lopez-Roa to the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit and charged with her robbery.  She has been released from custody pending a preliminary hearing scheduled  for October 25.  Dodd was transported to the Carroll County Detention Center to face the robbery charges brought in that county.  Montgomery County Police robbery detectives have obtained a warrant for Dodd's arrest for committing the Sandy Spring Bank robbery.  She remains in the custody of Carroll County.
