Arlington County Police were called to the Capital One Bank branch in the 3500 block of Columbia Pike for a bank robbery.
The incident happened on Friday when the subject passed a note implying he had a weapon and received an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing in an unknown direction.
The FBI, the Arlington Police department and Fairfax County Police are searching for this unknown serial bank robber dubbed the "Forever Loyal Bandit," who is believed to be responsible for three previews bank robberies and an attempted bank robbery in the Falls Church section of Fairfax County, Virginia. The incidents occurred between June and August 2014 at various banks along the Leesburg Pike corridor.
The individual is described as a black male, approximately 30 years old, who has on two occasions worn a white T-shirt with a distinctive logo and the words "Forever Loyal" emblazoned on the chest. In addition, he wears a dark baseball hat pulled low over his face during the robberies. The word "VIBES" is printed on the hat in one robbery, and it appears the lettering has been darkened in a subsequent incident to obscure his identity.
The series of robberies started on Friday, June 27, 2014, at the Capital One Bank located at 5851 Crossroads Center in Falls Church. The next robbery occurred on Monday, July 21, 2014, at the Capital One Bank located at 6367 Seven Corners Center in Falls Church. The final robbery took place on Saturday, August 9, 2014, at the SunTrust Bank located at 5821 Crossroads Center in Falls Church. Additionally, the individual attempted to rob the BB&T Bank on Friday, August 15, 2014, located at 5871 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church. During that time period, there were numerous suspicious person calls made to police at area banks involving the same subject.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of this individual.
Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (202) 278-2000, the Fairfax County Police at (703) 691-2131, or Crime Solvers at (866) 411-TIPS/8477.
