Crime Solvers Tip Leads to Apprehension of serial Bank Robbery Suspect

A tip received through the Fairfax County Crime Solvers tip line has led to the arrest of a bank robbery suspect.  A tipster provided information which identified the alleged suspect in several recent bank robberies.  That information was given to police.

The tip aided detectives in their investigation and led them to arrest and charge 37-year-old David Brian Clark, of no fixed address, with one count of robbery and one count of the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.  Those charges stem from a bank robbery on April 3, 2006, at the BB&T Bank, located at 7393-A Lee Highway in the Falls Church area.  Clark allegedly robbed the employees of that bank at gunpoint.

In addition, Clark is also a suspect in three other incidents:  A bank robbery on May 9, 2006, at the BB&T Bank, located at 7000 Bland Street in the Springfield area; a bank robbery on May 11, 2006, at the BB&T Bank, located at 7393-A Lee Highway; an attempted bank robbery on July 18, 2006, at the BB&T Bank, located at 7393-A Lee Highway. 

As detectives continue to investigate, more charges are anticipated.
