Suspect sought in burglary and attempted bank robbery

(Danville, Va.) — Danville Police believe the same man who attempted to rob a bank Wednesday afternoon was responsible for an earlier burglary at an ABC Store in town.

The man entered Carter Bank and Trust on Westover Drive around noon Wednesday and handed the teller a note demanding money. No weapon was displayed and police say he fled the bank empty-handed.

Investigators said the physical description of the man and his clothing are similar to the suspect in an ABC Store burglary on Union Street early Wednesday morning.

It is believed he fled in a black, four-door Honda Accord.

Police are asking for help identifying the suspect and locating the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or Danville Crime Stoppers at 434-793-000.
