Same Man May Have Hit 4 Banks in 3 Days

From today's Metro section:

A man who robbed two banks in Loudoun County yesterday may be on a spree, with authorities saying he resembles the person who robbed a bank in Fairfax County earlier yesterday and another Fairfax bank Tuesday.

The suspect is a white man in his forties, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, and in surveillance photos from both counties he is wearing sunglasses on top of his head. The first robbery occurred at 1:44 p.m. Tuesday at the BB&T bank branch at 13821 Lee Jackson Memorial Hwy. in Chantilly. The man demanded cash and did not show a gun.

Police believe that at 10:30 a.m. yesterday, the same man robbed the Virginia Commerce Bank at 13881-G Metrotech Dr. in Chantilly. About an hour later, at the BB&T branch in the Junction Plaza shopping center in Ashburn, he is believed to have robbed again. Loudoun sheriff's office spokesman Kraig Troxell said the man implied that he had a gun in that holdup but did not show one.

A fourth robbery occurred about 1 p.m. at the Provident Bank in the Community Plaza shopping center in Sterling.

The robber may have been driving a silver or gray sport utility vehicle, possibly a Ford, Troxell said.
