Police: Robber shouted 'Merry Christmas'

By The Associated Press

Police say an arrest has been made in a bank robbery where the suspect shouted "Merry Christmas" before fleeing.

Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Lt. Col Michael Timm says 34-year-old Tori Kay Pollard of Spotsylvania County was arrested Tuesday night after a detective recognized the suspect from a previous case.

Timm says the bank robbery charges stemmed from a Dec. 1 holdup where the holiday greeting was used at a Virginia Commerce Bank branch in Spotsylvania, and a Dec. 20 robbery of a SunTrust Bank branch in Hanover County.

Timm says a search of Pollard's home turned up items allegedly used in both robberies.

Pollard is being held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail. Timm said Wednesday he didn't know whether Pollard had an attorney.

They should've shouted Happy New Year when they ran into his house.

I think working a "Happy Festivus" in would have been nice...have to keep armed robberies politically correct too.
Then when they catch him it would be "a Festivus miracle".
