Broad daylight robbery did little to slow afternoon shopping

Warren County Report

Authorities are looking for a suspect in an early afternoon robbery of the Woodforest National Bank inside the Riverton Commons Wal-mart on Friday, Aug. 12.

Security camera photos released by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office show a black male, described as 6-foot-1 to 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds. The suspect was wearing black T-shirt and khaki shorts and khaki ball cap when he approached a teller at 12:50 PM and passed a note demanding money.

After receiving an amount of money not being specified by authorities at this time, the suspect exited the store.

Authorities are seeking information on both the man pictured in the security film and a two-door, dark-colored car with a dark convertible top believed involved in the getaway.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lieutenant Magalis or Sergeant Foster at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office 540-635-7100 or 540-635-4128.

Banking “that way” was probably not what the Riverton Commons Wal-mart in-store bank had in mind with its “Banking Your Way … Every Day and Night!” slogan.
Warren County Sheriff’s Office deputies staked out the Wal-mart parking lot immediately after Aug. 12 bank robbery. Suspect is believed to have fled in a dark, 2-door, dark top convertible.
