Suspect with Coach bag might have robbed two banks in Virginia

A suspect wearing a blond wig and carrying a Coach bag might have robbed two banks in Fairfax County over the past week, police said.

The woman entered a United Bank in the 2000 block of Chain Bridge Road about 11:30 a.m. Saturday and handed a teller a note demanding money, county police said. The teller complied, and the woman fled.

The woman is described as black, 30 to 35 years old, 5’9” tall and 150 to 170 pounds.

The same suspect might have also robbed a Bank of America branch on Metrotech Drive in Chantilly early July 15.

In both robberies, surveillance cameras captured images of the woman.
