This Week in Crime: FBI's Sort of Most Wanted

Hey, remember that time or four when an extremely athletic but somewhat plan-averse bank robber would come into random Reston banks and be all like, "hey, give me all your money and a bag to put it in because I'm hearing my hoodie without pockets, K?" and then manage cunning escapes through places where no man or beast dared follow, like the sidewalks and trails?

Yeah, that was awesome. But now that this guy has left Reston's invisible unincorporated boundaries and struck banks elsewhere in Fairfax County, the FBI's on the case, offering a $10,000 reward:

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of a serial bank robber suspected of robbing several Fairfax County banks.

The most recent robbery occurred Mon., March 23 around 9:44 a.m.

An employee of the United Bank, located at 13060 Fair Lakes Boulevard, was working behind the counter when a man armed with a gun entered the bank, jumped the counter and demanded money.

The suspect locked the bank employees inside a vault, took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot. The victim, a 35-year-old Falls Church man, was not injured. The suspect is described as black, about 30 years old. He was approximately 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall and 180 pounds. He wore a dark-colored hoodie, a mask, jeans and tennis shoes.

Robbery detectives believe this suspect is involved in several other robberies that have occurred since Nov. 2008, most of which took place in Reston.
Awesome! We can't wait for the hard target search.
