CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Police think the same armed robber may have hit the same Chesterfield bank twice in just a matter of weeks. According to Lt. Dave Higgins, a man walked into the bank on Amberdale Drive around 11:20 a.m. Saturday and pulled out a long gun. He then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police described the suspect as a white male, between 20 to 30 years old of age, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He was was wearing a dark-colored ski mask, gray sweatshirt and blue jeans.

This same Wells Fargo branch was also robbed on June 27. No arrest has been made and police provided a similar suspect description.

“When the man came in, he said, ‘Put your hands where I  can see — and I promise nobody gets hurt,” a woman who was inside Wells Fargo on June 27 when the masked gunman walked in said. “I hope they find him because this is unbelievable.”

Since witnessing the robbery, the woman said she has avoided going inside the bank. She was stunned to learn the same man may have hit the same bank for a second time in less than a month. Anyone with information should contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
