Female Suspect Sought In 4 Chesterfield Robberies

Posted: Updated:

Chesterfield, VA—Police are searching for a woman believed to have robbed four Chesterfield banks since July 12.

A Black female suspect is said to be involved in the following robberies:

  • Wells Fargo bank branch at 4400 W. Hundred Road at about 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 12.
  •  Bank of Southside Virginia branch at 4310 W. Hundred Road at about 4 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 6.

  • Virginia Credit Union branch at 13025 Jefferson Davis Highway at about 4:20 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7.

In each incident, the suspect approached a teller and demanded money. In the Virginia Credit Union robbery, the suspect told tellers she had a bomb, and left a suspicious package in the bank.

The building was evacuated, and members of the Virginia State Police bomb squad determined that the package was not an explosive device.

There were no injuries in any of the incidents.

The suspect is described as a Black female, about 40 to 55 years old and 5 feet 3 inches tall. In several robberies, she has worn what appears to be a short, reddish-brown or auburn wig and glasses.

Police ask anyone with information about this suspect or any of these incidents to contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660. A cash reward of up to $1000 is offered for information which helps solve the crime.
