Police Continue Search for RVC Bank Robber

Suspect used a fake bomb to rob Community National Bank in December.

Police are still searching for the suspect who robbed Community National Bank earlier in December with a fake bomb.

According to police, the pictured suspect entered Community National Bank, located at 333 Merrick Road, around 11:50 a.m. on Dec. 7 and requested to speak to the bank manager.

Police said that after entering the manager’s office, the suspect placed a brown folder on the desk, told the manager it was a robbery and demanded money. The suspect also indicated that the folder contained a "device."

After obtaining an undetermined amount of cash, the suspect left the folder on the manager’s desk and fled the bank on foot heading westbound on Merrick Road, police said.

The arson/bomb squad responded to the scene and determined the folder to be non-hazardous.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 50s, approximately 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall, medium-stocky build, with graying dark hair. At the time of the robbery, the suspect was wearing a charcoal/gray overcoat and dark dress pants.

Crime Stoppers is asking anyone who can identify the suspect or anyone who has any information about this crime to contact Crime Stoppers at their toll free hotline: 1-800-244-TIPS (8477). All calls will be kept confidential.
