RICHMOND — Richmond Police say they have identified the vehicle driven by a man who robbed the US Bank at the corner of Main Street and Madison Avenue on Aug. 16.

Surveillance video in the area captured the man entering and driving a maroon Dodge Journey.  

“It is believed the suspect walked and drove around the area of the bank before actually committing the robbery,” said Major Bob Mott. “The vehicle was parked in the parking lot to the rear of Stop & Go Barbecue on Water Street while the robbery was committed.”

The man, who is also believed to have robbed a West Virginia bank earlier in August, walked into US Bank at 12:07 p.m. while some employees were out to lunch and placed a silver-and-black semi-automatic handgun on the counter. Moments later, he ran out the back door with a pocketful of cash.

He was captured on the bank’s surveillance video. The suspect is in his late 30s or early 40s, and wore a black baseball cap, a green button-down shirt and khaki pants. He is about 6 feet tall with a medium build, sandy hair and slight facial hair, said RPD Chief Larry Brock.
