Press release from Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - Tori Kay Pollard of Spotsylvania County was arrested last evening, December 28, 2010 for a bank robbery that occurred on December 1, 2010 at the Virginia Commerce Bank located at 10800 Courthouse Road.                                                                  

On December 1, 2010 at approximately 3:45pm, a white female walked into the Virginia Commerce Bank and told a bank teller that she was going to rob the bank and stated that she has a gun.  The bank teller complied with the suspects demands and gave her an undisclosed amount of money.  No gun was ever displayed.  The suspect left the bank however not before yelling "Merry Christmas".  On December 20, 2010, a suspect fitting the same description robbed the SunTrust Bank in Hanover County.  After circulating the suspect's photo, Spotsylvania County Detective Troy Skebo recognized the suspect as Tori Pollard from a case he had previously worked years ago. 

During a search warrant of Tori's home last evening, numerous items of evidence were recovered that had been used in both robberies.  Tori was interviewed by both Spotsylvania and Hanover County detectives where she confessed to both robberies. It was also determined that the vehicle that was used in the Spotsylvania County robbery was located in Fairfax County.  The vehicle has since been seized and impounded at the Sheriff's Office.  Tori was arrested and charged for Robbery in both cases.  She is currently being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond.

With a collaborative investigation and resources from Hanover County Sheriff's Office and Fairfax County Police Department Tori was apprehended without any further incident.
