Police are looking for two armed and dangerous suspects in connection with a Rosslyn bank heist.
Two men entered the BB&T branch at 1901 Fort Myer Drive in Arlington at 1:45 p.m. Wednesday. One man showed a gun, while the other demanded money.
Once the robbers fled, a red dye pack was set off, causing them to drop some of the money in the Holiday Inn parking lot adjacent to the bank. The money was recovered by police. The bank branch is just a few blocks from the Rosslyn Metro Station, and police said they think the robbers used the Metro to escape after the heist.
Both suspects are black men approximately 6 feet tall with average builds. They were last seen in the bank wearing black waist coats with their heads, mouths and hands covered with black clothing items.
The same bank was robbed three years ago. On Jan. 11, 2008, a man handed a note to a teller demanding cash, implying a family member was in danger. The robber in that case was described as a white male between 45 and 50 years old.
