York Woman Robbed at Bank’s Night Drop

May 30th, 2011 by Kim Lenz

A surveillance camera captured a Sunday morning robbery at the Bank of America night drop in upper York County.

A woman was robbed Saturday morning as she tried to make a deposit at an upper York County bank.

York-Poquoson sheriff’s investigators say a woman drove up to the night deposit drawer at the Bank of America at 1801 Richmond Road around 9:50 a.m. and was approached by the suspect, who demanded the money she was going to deposit. The victim told police the suspect held something in his hand as he demanded the deposit bag, although she could not tell what it was. After several demands that she give up the cash, the woman complied and the suspect took off on foot towared the Wendy’s on Richmond Road.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned black male with short hair, approximately 6′- 6’2″ tall and a medium athletic build. He wore a tan shirt, dark pants and dark athletic shoes. He also had what appeared to be a black nylon stocking pulled over his face.

Police were able to obtain images of the robbery from a bank surveillance camera that was trained on the victim’s car.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

    How many armed robberies have we had in the last few months? My memory may not be accurate, but this seems like the 5th or 6th armed robbery in the Williamsburg area. I’m glad the bank robbers were caught recently, but this is an alarming trend. How does this compare to history? To other localities on the Peninsula? Just wondering what seems to be making Wburg such low-hanging fruit for these crimes?

    The railroad tracks and esecially UNDERNEATH the Bypass Road bridge! My recent research discovered a system of paths, years in the making, leading down and underneath that bridge! It’s a well-traveled path system that allows anyone to quickly go out from and escape back to and through, disappear, from businesses after a robbery all along our Richmond Road. WILL anyone investigate and understand how it works to the advantage of someone comitting a robbery all along our Richmond Road? And…all of this path system is right under the noses of hundreds of cars whizzing by, overhead, every day!
