A Wells Fargo bank in Sterling was robbed Dec. 13 by a person sporting a Florida State sweatshirt — and what appeared to be a Mitt Romney mask.
The suspect, described as a male, entered the bank at about 10:20 a.m. The bank is located in Sterling’s Community Plaza.
He “brandished a firearm and demanded cash,” according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
The man left the bank after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured in the incident, according to the sheriff’s office.
The same bank (then a branch of Wachovia) was robbed in December 2010 — by a man wearing a Hillary Rodham Clinton mask
That suspect was never apprehended, said Liz Mills, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman. She said that it is too early in the investigation to determine whether the two cases might be related.
