Sheriff's Investigators are asking for the public's assistance in helping to identify a suspect in an attempted
bank robbery Friday, Oct. 7, in Lovettsville.
According to the report, around 4:45 p.m., the suspect drove to a drive-thru lane of the BB&T Bank on East Broad Way. The suspect placed a note into the drive-thru tube
sending it to a teller. The note demanded money and made a bomb threat.
The suspect left the scene without any money. He is described as a white male in his early 20s. He was observed driving a blue car with tinted windows. The vehicle left the area heading north on Route 287.
The bank was searched and cleared by members of the Sheriff's Office canine unit as no suspicious devices were located.
The bank robbery attempt occurred approximately one hour after a bank robbery at the PNC bank in Sterling. In that case the unknown suspect walked into the PNC Bank in the Sugarland Run Crossing shopping center around 3:50 p.m. and handed a note to a teller demanding money. He fled
the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.
He is described as a white male, approximately 6 feet 3 inches tall, and has a brown mustache and brown eyes. He was wearing a blue raincoat and a black baseball hat.
Anyone with information about either of these cases is asked to contact the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475. To remain anonymous contact Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. If the information leads to an arrest and indictment the caller could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
