Man Robbed 4 Banks

Fairfax County police believe the same man who robbed a Chantilly BB&T Bank last Tuesday, March 28, robbed three more banks, two days later. The second bank was also in Chantilly and the third and fourth were in Loudoun County.

POLICE SAY that Thursday, March 30, around 10:30 a.m., a man walked into the Virginia Commerce Bank at 13881-G Metrotech Drive in Chantilly. He approached a 28-year-old teller from Fairfax and demanded money. She relinquished an undisclosed amount of cash, and he fled in a gray or silver, late-model SUV.

Around 11:30 a.m., police say the same man held up a teller at the BB&T in the Junction Plaza Shopping Center in Ashburn. Then, around 1 p.m. (perhaps, he took a lunch break), he robbed the Provident Bank in Sterling in the Community Plaza Shopping Center.

Loudoun County Sheriff's Office spokesman Kraig Troxell said surveillance footage from all four banks showed the same suspect. "On all the videos, it is pretty clear it is the same person," said Troxell. "He made no effort to disguise himself."

The suspect is described as white, in his 40s, about 5 feet 7 inches, with a thin build. During the March 30 heists, he wore a burgundy shirt, black jeans and black leather jacket, with sunglasses on his head.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents or this suspect is asked to call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or police at 703-691-2131.
