Dc Metro Area Bank Robberies


Recommended Posts

Today, June 29, another bank was robbed by three or four heavily armed men at the northwest bank intersecting Conneticut and Nebraska avenues. Authorities say that they believe this robbery is connected to a string of robberies that have occurred throughout the DC metro area over the past several months. The men are usually heavily armed and are very quick in getting away with as much money as they can get. They usually have a few getaway cars which they burn or blow up and get in another car. This seems almost like a movie (HEAT anyone?). The police is offering a $50,000 reward to anyone that can give a tip leading to the arrest of these robbers.

Bank Robbery at 5000 Connecticut Avenue, NW

 

At approximately 10:50 this morning, Tuesday, June 29, 2004, at least two men, wearing ski masks and armed with automatic rifles, entered the SunTrust Bank located at 5000 Connecticut Avenue, NW. Once inside, the gunmen demanded and obtained an undetermined amount of cash. During the commission of the robbery at least one of the gunmen discharged his weapon, apparently into the air. The suspects fled in a van operated by another subject who fled south on Connecticut Avenue, NW. The van was located a short distance away, set ablaze, in the 2500 block of Northampton Street, NW.

 

The suspects are only described as males, wearing ski masks, fatigues and armed with what appear to be automatic assault rifles.

 

This robbery marks the sixth bank robbery since January that appear to have been possibly committed by the same suspects. Members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Prince George’s County Police and Metropolitan Police Department are conducting a joint investigation. The other bank robberies were:

 

 

January 22, 2004 Bank of America, 5911 Blair Road, NW

March 5, 2004, Riggs Bank, 7601 Georgia Avenue, NW

May 10, 2004, Chevy Chase Bank, 3601 St. Barnabas Road, Temple Hills, MD

May 27, 2004, Chevy Chase Bank, 5823 Eastern Avenue, Hyattsville, MD

June 12, 2004, Industrial Bank, 2012 Rhode Island Avenue, NE

 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads to the identification, arrest and conviction of the suspects responsible for these robberies. Anyone with information about the identities or whereabouts of these suspects or sees them should take no direct action, but call the FBI at (202) 278-2000 or the Metropolitan Police Department at (202) 727-9099.
