Jason Sharpe/Credit: FCPDFairfax County Police have arrested a suspect in two recent Reston bank robberies.

Jason Sharpe, 30, of Blueberry Lane in Fairfax has been charged in relation to crimes that took place on Dec. 10 and 15, police said.

Sharpe was arrested around noon on Wednesday, Dec. 31 while leaving a friend’s home in the Reston area.

In addition to the bank robbery warrants, he was also charged with probation violation, and forgery and identity theft, stemming from warrants in Fredericksburg, Va. in October 2014, police said.

Detectives are continuing to investigate; Sharpe is being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

Sharpe was identified after a joint investigation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Marshal’s Service, and the FCPD Robbery Section.

The Dec. 10 incident was a robbery at the Wells Fargo Branch at Reston Town Center.

The Dec. 15 robbery took place at the Sun Trust Branch inside the Safeway at Hunters Woods Village Center.

There were two other recent bank robberies in Reston — Nov. 26 at Presidential Bank on Reston Parkway and Dec. 29 at the PNC Branch inside the North Point Giant. Police have not charged Sharpe in those robberies.

There were a total of eight bank robberies in December 2014, Fairfax County Police said. There were 20 in all of 2014 and one so far in the county in 2015.

    I don’t understand why he didn’t use a mask or cover his face? This does look like the guy from the photos the police released. Pretty easy to track him down.

    • Dexter Scott

      If the guy had any brains, would he be a bank robber?

  • Gavin
