Bank Robbery Suspect Arrested

An Arlington man was arrested outside the Wachovia Bank in Ballston Saturday morning after police say he passed a note demanding money.

Richard Jones, 54, was arrested outside the bank at Fairfax Drive and North Stafford, across from the IHOP. Police say he passed the note to a bank employee around 10:20 a.m.

Jones was charged with robbery and held without bond.

Ballston was the scene of another bank robbery back in April. The HSBC bank was robbed by a white male who entered the bank and demanded cash. So far, police have not announced any arrests in the case.
