Though this did happen in Georgia, the same principle applies here in Virginia.
SANDY SPRINGS, Ga.Jan 10, 2007 (AP)—Lt. Steve Rose of the Sandy Springs Police Department summed it up well, "It's weird." He was talking about two robberies at the Wachovia Bank in Sandy Springs that happened two days in a row. "That's the first time I've seen anything like that within 24 hours of each other," Rose said.
On Wednesday around 9:34 a.m. a man walked into the bank and presented a note to a teller that read "give me the money or I will shoot," Rose said. The man escabed in a silver Honda Civic or Saab with an undisclosed amount of money.
Earlier, around 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, a different man entered the bank showing an automatic gun and presented a note demanding money, Rose said. He also left with an undisclosed amount of money.
"We'll work these as independent bank robberies with the similarity of the time factor," Rose said. "It may be they could know each other but that gives us another angle to pursue. There's someone out there that knows these two guys."
