This Week in Crime: 'Twas the Day After Christmas...

... and all through the Wachovia,
not a security guard was stirring,
not even a... oh, hell. Nothing rhymes with "Wachovia."

Anyhoo, the Wachovia in Hunters Woods Plaza got robbed on Dec. 26, the day after Christmas, just like two Reston-area BB&Ts got robbed, the first on the day after Thanksgiving, by a very energetic bank robber.
An employee of the Wachovia Bank, located at 2264 Colts Neck Road, was robbed on Friday, December 26. The victim, a 34-year-old Reston woman, was working behind the counter around 5:40 p.m. when a man reportedly armed with a gun walked in and demanded money. The victim complied and the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect was described as 25-30 years old with a medium-complexion. He was about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a medium build and wore a dark blue or gray winter coat with a light blue inner collar and red zipper. He also wore blue jeans, dark boots and a navy blue, knit mask.
No word yet on whether this incident is connected with the previous two robberies, but this EXCLUSIVE RESTONIAN footage from the security camera makes us wonder.
