Police Release Video of Check Cashing Store Robbery

Police have released surveillance video they hope will help lead to the arrests of suspects from last week’s check cashing store robbery in the 4700 block of Columbia Pike.

According to police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck, the two men confronted an employee as she was approaching the store to begin her shift last Wednesday (July 25). One held a gun to her head, the other a knife to her neck. They forced her to open the safe and made off with its contents, which was nearly $40,000.

The suspects are both described as Hispanic men between 5’8″ and 5’10” with medium builds.

Anyone who has information about the suspects or the crime is asked to contact Detective Robert Wright at 703-228-4197 or [email protected] To report information anonymously, contact the Arlington County Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS (8477).
