Suspect sought in Va. bank robberies
A man who robbed a Wachovia Bank in Sterling on Saturday may be responsible for a number of other robberies in Northern Virginia, police said Monday.
The man entered the Wachovia branch in Community Plaza shortly before 9:45 a.m., according to a news release from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. He implied he had a weapon and demanded cash, police said.
Police said the suspect was described as a white male in his late 20s between 5 foot-7 and 5-foot-9 in height, weighing between 150 and 180 pounds. On Saturday, he was wearing a yellow shirt, a camouflaged hooded jacket and a black ski cap.
Police believe the same man may be responsible for an Oct. 6 robbery at the Bank of America in Regal Plaza in Sterling, an Oct. 21 robbery at the Presidential Bank in Reston, an Oct. 26 robbery at the Capital One bank in Great Falls and a Nov. 4 robbery at the Bank of Clarke County in Winchester.
Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Investigator J. Halley of the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office criminal investigations division at 703-777-0475. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call 703-777-1919.
