The Alexandria Police Department is investigating the robbery of a Burke and Herbert Bank located at 306 E. Monroe Avenue. On Monday, January 4, at 2:25 p.m., a man entered the bank and passed the teller a note which implied that he had an explosive device. He demanded money, the teller complied, and the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, leaving the “device” at the bank. There were no injuries and the item was not an explosive.
The suspect is described as a heavyset black male, approximately 6’2”, in his late 50’s to early 60’s. He was last seen wearing a gray knit hat with a black stripe across it, a black winter jacket, and glasses. Surveillance photos of the suspect are attached.
The Federal Bureau of Investigations is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest and conviction of this bank robbery.
Police ask that anyone with information about this incident call Detective Ryan Clinch at 703.746.6673.
