A 24-year-old Reston man was arrested earlier this week for allegedly robbing a bank in Tennessee.
Virginia State Police say a routine traffic stop led to the capture of two Tennessee bank robbery suspects.Pretty weird, especially considering there are plenty of banks to be robbed so much closer to home.
Conroy says a missing front tag and a failure to signal prompted Trooper O.J. Lilly to stop a car occupied by the suspects on U.S. 11 in Wytheville. He says a search of the car turned up an undisclosed amount of cash, a small amount of marijuana and paraphernalia, and five handguns.
The men were charged with being fugitives from justice from Marion County, Tennessee on federal bank robbery and kidnapping charges. The FBI is investigating the robbery of a Citizens Tri-County Bank in South Pittsburg, Tennessee.
