A man accused of robbing a bank in Bucks County was arrested after his mother reported him to police, officials said.
Trevor Bergey, 20, is accused of robbing the TD Bank on Oxford Valley Road in Fairless Hills in Bristol Township Tuesday shortly before 11 a.m. Bergey allegedly entered the bank and handed the teller a note which read, “Do not panic! I have a gun put $400 in this envelope and I'll be on my way. Nobody will get hurt and I will report myself to the authorities in about 6 hours THANK YOU!"
Bergey then took the money and fled in a silver Nissan SUV west on New Falls Road, police said.

Police obtained surveillance video of Bergey and sent the images to local media. Tuesday night, Bergey’s mother called a Bristol Township detective and identified the suspect as her son. The mother told police she had received a call from Bergey’s aunt who saw the surveillance photos online and recognized Bergey, officials said.
The mother told investigators her son was a heroin addict who was suicidal after breaking up with his girlfriend, according to police. She also said she was unsure where he was at the time.
On Wednesday around 1 a.m., Bergey’s mother called police again and reported her son was at the Lower Bucks Hospital seeking help after suffering heroin withdrawal symptoms, according to investigators. Police officers arrived at the hospital and stayed with Bergey until he received his treatment.
Detectives then interviewed Bergey who allegedly confessed to the robbery.
Bergey was video arraigned around 11 a.m. and taken to the Bucks County Correctional Facility. He is currently being held on 10% of $500,000 bail.
