Bank Robbery Suspect Captured

Officers from the Mason station Neighborhood Patrol Unit arrested a man moments after he apparently robbed an employee working at the BB&T Bank at 6120A Arlington Boulevard on Thursday, September 8.

Investigators say Montrell Richardson, 33, of 8523 Canterbury Drive in Annandale, entered the bank just before 10:30 a.m. and allegedly demanded money from a teller.

The 22-year-old female teller complied and as the suspect left the bank, officers engaged him. He attempted to flee but officers quickly apprehended him. Richardson was transported to the adult detention center and charged with robbery.

Robbery detectives are trying to determine if Richardson is connected to any other incidents.
