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.
