This Week in Crime: Maybe He Needed the Cash for Black Friday

While upstanding citizens were lining up to buy heavily discounted flat-screen TVs and whatnot on Friday, one enterprising chap decided to rob the Reston BB&T bank on Fox Mill Road.

Fairfax County police have released a surveillance photo of the man who robbed the BB&T Bank branch on Fox Mill Road in Reston Friday evening.

A man entered the bank around 5:45 p.m., drew a gun and demanded money from a 23-year-old bank teller, police said. She turned the money over to the robber and he fled with an undisclosed sum.

The robber was described as either white or Hispanic, around 5'7" and 170 pounds, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, khaki pants, a black ski mask, light-colored work gloves and white shoes.
We can only hope the same thing didn't happen on "Cyber Monday." Otherwise, we'll have to start harping about the MASSIVE CRIME WAVE all over again.
