A Maryland man has been arrested in connection with a robbery at Wells Fargo in Reston’s North Point Village Center, police announced today.

Police believe the suspect — 37-year-old Zachary Allen Hunter — may be involved with multiple other robberies in the region.

Yesterday morning (Wednesday) shortly before 9:30 a.m, Hunter allegedy entered the bank at 1498 North Point Village Center and demanded cash while implying he had a firearm, police say. He left the area in a Mercedes.

An off-duty police officer was able to track the suspect in Tysons. When the vehicle was seen turning in Lincoln Lane but failing to exit, the officer coordinated with other law enforcement to search the area.

“Hunter was found slouched inside the vehicle and was taken into custody,” police said.

Detectives plan to charge the suspect with additional charges. Yesterday, he was charged with one count of robbery and was held without bound.

The stolen cash was also recovered, according to police, who didn’t identify the amount taken.
