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.
