FBI Offers Reward for Info in Reston Bank Robbery

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has released photos of the suspect in the robbery at PNC bank inside the North Point Village Center Giant store earlier this week.

A man robbed the branch about 5 p.m. Monday. He told the teller he had a weapon and fled with an undisclosed amount of money, Fairfax County Police said.

The suspect is a black male, about 5-foot-7 and 170 lbs., said the FBI. He was wearing a red Nike hooded sweatshirt.

The description of the suspect is very similar to the suspect in the robbery of the Sun Trust branch inside the Safeway at Hunters Woods Village Center on Dec. 15.

There were also two other Reston bank robberies in recent weeks, Nov. 26 at Presidential Bank near the Home Depot and Dec. 10 at the Wells Fargo at Reston Town Center.

FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest and conviction of the suspect.

Anyone with information can call the FBI at 202-278-2000 or Fairfax County Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477.
