Police: One woman may be responsible for three Fairfax bank robberies

A woman who robbed a Fairfax County bank Tuesday might have hit two others in recent weeks, county police said Wednesday.

A woman entered the BB&T Bank at 5105 Westfields Blvd. in Centreville just after 5 p.m., police said in a news release. She passed a teller a note, implied that she had a weapon and demanded money.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the suspect left, police said. She was last seen jogging towards Sequoia Farms Drive, which crosses Westfields Drive to the south of the bank.

Nobody was hurt during the robbery, according to police.

Police said the suspect was described as black, about 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighing between 160 and 170 pounds. She wore a black shirt and pants, a black and white scarf and large sunglasses, according to police.

The same woman may have committed two similar robberies in the Chantilly area in recent weeks, at the Northwest Federal Credit Union on March 2 and the Apple Federal Credit Union on Feb. 26, police said.

In both cases, police reported that a woman with a description similar to the one above committed the crimes.

They usually get caught. FBI has seen their share of bank robberies. Not much that's new. Very few get to lie around on the beach & spend the money. I hope her head gets blown clean off when she tries to resist arrest.

If you like eating what people tell you to eat every day then carry on, lady. You want to shower with criminals & crazy people & smell the smells that emanate from their bodies. Carry on. You enjoy having to fight for your life at a moment's notice. Carry on. You like seeing your family members when someone else tells you that you can. Carry on.

No more going to a restaurant, concert, movie, play, casino, museum, art gallery, etc. Just staring at the same walls & stupid, ugly creepy roommate & the rest of the female knuckleheads in the prison. Day after day after day. Year after year after year. Maybe you'll survive. Maybe you won't. Maybe you'll bleed to death in the shower after being stuck.

Carry on.

In Fairfax County you don't HAVE to resist arrest to get your head blown off....

OK. Let's have it. What's your beef with the mean ole Fairfax County PD? They didn't give you a lollipop when they pulled you over for speeding? Perhaps they forgot to refer to you as "Your Royal Highness." Maybe they made your teacup chihuahua poop on your car's rich corinthian leather.

Two problems: 1. How can you be sure that this person is a "woman?" 2. I doubt that he/she could've "jogged" very far or fast.
