Police have released surveillance photos of the man they say robbed a bank on Columbia Pike yesterday afternoon.

Police say the man walked into the Bank of America branch on the 3400 block of Columbia Pike at about 3:20 p.m., implied he had a weapon and demanded money. He fled on foot after receiving cash.

“The suspect is described as a white Hispanic male in his early 20’s, 5’7” to 5’8” with a medium build,” Arlington County Police said in a press release. “At the time of the robbery he wore a black hooded jacket and dark pants.”

“Anyone who has information about this robbery or the identity of the suspect is asked to call the Arlington County Police Department Tip Line at 703 228-4242, or Detective John Donaggio at (703) 228-4167,” the press release continued. “Det.

  • Arlington Native

    Anyone notice that he looks like the same guy who robbed the Rossyln bank earlier this week?

    • brendan

      yeah. pretty sure it is… same chin.

  • carbonita

    Pfft…sith…what do you expect?

  • Pumped Out Freak on a Big Wheel

    he looks like the Dark Sith…

    • Yoda

      Light sith there are not

    • NPGMBR

      I was thinking the same thing!

  • Finally, a good clear photo from a camera installed in a bank. Hope all banks upgrade their surveillance camera systems. I suspect it would make a big difference in capturing robbers.

    Hope the police catch this guy.

    • NPGMBR

      No doubt….I’ve always wondered why Banks in particular have such crappy surveillance systems.

      • JamesE

        they watch CSI and assume you can blow up a 20×20 image to 4000×4000 high res massive detail, ENHANCE

      • Boom! Roasted

        Because they’re expensive to install in 20 million different branches?

        • ArlingtonChick

          Yeah, but this one is kind of a run down branch.

  • Boo

    Is that Remy!?

  • Joe Hoya

    The Trappist monks obviously needed more money to buy beer-brewing supplies.

  • Greg

    The one on the left looks like David Blaine doing card tricks.

    • JamesE

      I will make this money disappear

  • Copperfield

    Criss Angel?

  • Rebecca

    He’s not wearing gloves and it appears he is touching the counter (or could have touched the counter)… finger prints? Or did that go out years ago?

    • CrystalMikey

      Good call on that!

    • KalashniKEV

      That’s what the orange tool box is about in the last set of photos.

    • Zoning Victim

      Yeah, his and 5,000 other people’s all on top of each other. It would be nice if they got one, but I wouldn’t count on it.

  • The Gov..

    He has fake mustache on, or drew on on…

  • fakeclarendondude

    I always wondered what Novasteve looked like. Finally moved to robbing the “liberal” banks to support concervative causes like guns, not butter.

  • 24

    Time to bring Jack Bower out of retirement. This scum would have been caught hours ago.

  • Well

    He might just be homeless people! Jeez, he should be allowed to get some free money.

    • KalashniKEV

      I would have more respect for someone who knocks over a bank or pulls an armed robbery than someone who just leeches off the system.

      • novasteve

        But I believe FDIC might pay for the money in case the bank’s insurer won’t or dosn’t.

      • leech

        We all leech and you are no exception – it’s all a question of how and how much

        • Zoning Victim

          Explanation please; I always love hearing about how the people who actually pay the taxes are leeches, too.

        • KalashniKEV

          I’m no leech.

          With the rate I’m taxed at, I likely provide a good chunk of sustenance and leisure for Hobos, Substance Abusers, the Permanently Unemployed…

          • TP

            I love to hear government contractors bitching about how much taxes they pay

  • jim

    If the robber is an illegal alien, not only will he not be sent to jail when arrested, but Tejada will invite him over for dinner…………….

    • Harry

      So many people on here complain about the county board, and yet when November rolls around all the republicans are hiding under their desks for fear that someone might ask them to run a serious campaign. Even in the upcoming special election, which historically has been the GOP’s best chance to win a seat, there has yet to be a republican candidate.

      The people of Arlington don’t want a republican county board member, and apparently neither does the local GOP!
