While Arlington police remain on the lookout for our own serial bank robbery suspect, police in Montgomery County, Md. are looking for a serial bank robber who has also hit banks in Arlington and Alexandria.

The suspect, seen here in a surveillance photo, has hit eight banks in Montgomery County, two banks in Alexandria and one bank in Arlington.

The Arlington robbery occurred on Dec. 14, at the BB&T Bank at 2947 S. Glebe Road. The suspect passed a note to a teller implying he had a gun, but no weapon was seen.

The suspect’s most recent reported robbery was on July 21, at a SunTrust Bank in Potomac, Md.

“Detectives are asking anyone with information about the bank robberies and/or the suspect to call the Montgomery County Police – Robbery Section at 240-773-5100,” police said in a press release. “Those who wish to remain anonymous should call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or at 240-773-TIPS (8477).  Crime Solvers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information provided to them that leads to the arrest and/or indictment of the person responsible for these bank robberies.  Anonymous tips can also be provided by typing ‘MCPD’ plus the tip on a cell phone or PDA and texting it to 274637 (CRIMES).”

      Snarky reply to racist comment.

      • Steve85

        What??? That was unnecessary

    • Richard Cranium

      I’m going to regret asking this, but how is “I knew he could walk” possibly a racist comment?

  • SaveDaveMcKenna

    How did he imply a gun, Finger in coat pocket? He drew a gun on the holdup note? He was wearing an NRA jacket?

    • Richard Cranium

      I think he used the phrase “shooty-thingy” along with a wink and a nod.

      The teller saw a bulge in his pocket

        Sorry, I can’t resist…..Teller to Robber: So, is that a gun in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

    I like MoCo’s Bank Robber better.

    • Chouse

      Hey, atleast our guy keeps it classy with the driving hat.

      • KalashniKEV

        I know but he’s so OLD… I would feel bad if I busted a Juan Rivera on him.

        Wow r u serious. These guys are putting people lives in danger and you talk about who looks the best. Loose a member in a bank robbery and see how that feels. I lost a friend due to a dumb bank robber. Let’s worry about getting these guys off the street instead of worrying about who looks the best

        • Captain Obvious

          Allow me to help you. No, he is not serious.

          HTH, HAND.

          • Steve85

            Your’re the biggest co-signer on here. I know it was sarcasm but some topics hit home when it affects you in some way.

          • Captain Obvious

            I have no idea what you mean by “co-signer”, and I don’t believe you when you say that you actually got the joke. Sorry, past history indicates otherwise.

          • steve85

            Hey Cap.. it means that you agree to everything someone else says. It seems like when someone disagree with me you like to agree to everything they say. I understand that you may be old and is not hip to the new things but its ok. Lol. Use your own opinion not someone elses.

          • Captain Obvious

            Hmm. No, I usually just try to help you see what it is you’re missing. Like attacking someone as being serious when, to most of us, it was obvious they weren’t being so. As in the instant case. Furthermore, I think once again you’re simply wrong. I believe if you look back, I very rarely reply to someone else with a “ditto” type of response.

            Being called old and not hip I’m fine with, whether or not it’s the truth. I’m also OK with the occasional typo. However, I would suggest to you that consistent and flagrant spelling/punctuation/tense/grammatical/homonym errors indicate that you are uneducated, or that you simply don’t care. Whichever is the case, please know that such demonstrated and consistent sloppiness detracts, dramatically, from whatever point you are trying to make at the time.

            Not being hostile, just pointing it out because I think you should know if your goal is to try to get people to listen to your point of view. T\Keep in mind that there are people who are not old and not un-hip who also think these things to be important, FYI. Just sayin’.

        • Chouse

          I was not aware that every comment posted on this site has to be serious comments. We cant have a lighthearted joking discuss during work? Obviously everyone here wants these scumbags to be caught but in the meantime we can have fun with it. Clearly as Captain Obvious had to point out to you, its not serious.

          Since I will not be able to directly affect getting these gyus off the street from my office chair, why not add some extremely lighthearted innocent humor

          Thanks for once again showing your inability to understand sarcasm. Fail.

          • KalashniKEV

            “Since I will not be able to directly affect getting these gyus off the street…”

            I am going to catch the boobie grabber… I’m already keeping close tabs all all Eastern European Lifeguard boobs in my Area of Operations. 🙂

          • Richard Cranium

            I would like to offer my finely honed skills of Boobservation in assistance of your noble effort. Lead on, Sir.

          • KalashniKEV

            I was actually recently discussing the formation of a neighborhood watch based on the Safwa Forces model I fielded in Iraq. Do you own a PT Belt?

  • Ehh??

    I’m wondering how the guy robbed a bank, where the surveillance footage clearly shows 2″ thick bullet resistant barriers in place.

    That’s like standing outside an armored car and having them open the doors and hand over the money because you told them to.

    Am I missing something?

    • Lee-n-Glebe

      Probably. Tellers are told to not resist, for their own safety. If someone shows or implies a weapon, the tellers are told to comply. They have marked bill drawers, etc, and the bank would rather that they hand over the money than be killed. They’re not breaking into the vault, they’re getting the bills, presumably marked, from a single teller’s drawer.

      No room for heroes here.
