As we told you first (see herehere and here), the Alexandria Police Department is investigating the robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank located in the 300 block of N. Washington Street. Around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 10, a man entered the bank and passed a teller a note demanding money. The teller complied and the suspect fled on foot. No one in the bank was injured.

The suspect is described as a black male with a light complexion, between 20 and 30 years old, approximately 6′ with an average build. He was last seen wearing a black “peacoat” style jacket and a navy knit hat with a pattern on it.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has linked this suspect to two other recent bank robberies. One occurred in Arlington County on November 10, 2014, and the other in Washington D.C. on December 4, 2014. Both bank robberies were similar in nature to this incident.

Anyone with additional information about this suspect is asked to call Detective Brad Cecchetti at 703.746.6858.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest and conviction of this bank robber.​
