Man dressed as a woman robs bank

HANOVER COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - The bank robbery suspect who dressed as a woman likely struck again. 

Police say the man robbed the Wachovia bank near Mechanicsville Turnpike and Cold Harbor Road this afternoon.

He's wearing a wig, a skirt and carrying a purse. Police say he looks a lot like the guy who robbed a SunTrust bank earlier this week.

We showed Wachovia banker, William Kemp the surveillance pictures.

"To be honest, it looks like someone in drag," said Kemp.

Hanover Sheriff Department say at around 3:30 PM, this man walked up to the teller, indicated he was armed, and demanded money.

He left the bank with cash but detectives say no one saw how he got away.

Funny thing is, authorities say they don't think this is the first time he robbed a bank.

Hanover authorities say they are now working closely with Chesterfield County authorities to hopefully catch this guy before he strikes again.

Both Chesterfield and Hanover authorities say this man looks to be in his mid thirties and about 5 feet 7 inches tall.

If you think you know who he is call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
