A 35-year-old man who has been wanted by the FBI for nearly seven years in connection with a bank robbery in Charlottesville was arrested Tuesday night in Fairfax County, police said.
Gerald S. Glick, who police said has been living at 11240 Chestnut Grove Square in Reston, using the name William Condon, was arrested at a health food store in Reston where he works. Police said he had been identified as a bank robbery suspect through a routine FBI fingerprint check after being convicted of shoplifting in Fairfax County last month.
Glick was "highly sought after" and apparently used a series of aliases over the last seven years, although law enforcement authorities have not determined what his activities were during that time, said Raymond Connolly Jr. of the Northern Virginia office of the FBI.
Glick is charged with robbing a Charlottesville bank on May 7, 1976, police said. After being arrested in 1976 he escaped from a hospital in Charlottesville where he had been ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation, police said.
On April 15, Glick, using the name Condon, was charged with shoplifting at the Giant Food store in the Fox Mill Shopping Center in Reston, police said. He was convicted in Fairfax County General District Court on May 11.
Glick appeared before a federal magistrate in Alexandria yesterday and was to be returned to Abingdon in the custody of U.S. marshals.
