A bank robbery suspect was taken into custody by the Arlington County Police Department, with assistance from the FBI Washington Field Office and Alexandria Police Department, at his residence in the 1400 block of N. Scott Street. A 30-year-old Arlington man was arrested during the evening of April 8 and charged with bank robbery. He is being held without bail.
At approximately 3:59 p.m. on Nov. 10, 2014, the Arlington County Emergency Communications Center was alerted of a bank robbery that had just taken place at the Presidential Bank, located in the 900 block of N. Stuart Street. The suspect entered the bank just prior to closing time and handed a teller a note that demanded money and implied he had a weapon. The teller gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money and the subject fled towards Ballston Metro Center.
After months of police investigation and collaboration with partner law enforcement agencies, the man was identified as the primary suspect. Officers took the subject into custody without incident and he is being held at the Arlington County Detention Facility.
