Woodbury Bank Robbed


December 2, 2021

Herald of Nov. 27, 1996

An armed man held up the Woodbury branch of the First American National Bank, making off with an undisclosed amount of money. It was believed that after leaving the bank, he ran on foot down Route 36 to a parked vehicle. Two bloodhounds were brought in from Saxton and police interviewed area residents, but there were no real leads. Earlier in the week, there was another robbery at a bank in Bedford. Police did not believe the same man was responsible for both.

The Martinsburg Fire Company kicked off a fundraising campaign to purchase a tanker. The expected cost of the new White Freightliner was $160,000. The Martinsburg Jaycees presented the fire company with a check for $800 toward the cost. The Jaycess were disbanding because of a lack of community interest, and were disbursing their funds to the community.

Community organizers were planning for the first annual Christmas parade in Martinsburg. At least 27 groups were planning to participate.
