HARRISONBURG -- The Harrisonburg Police Department arrested a 16 year-old male in connection to Monday's BB&T Bank robbery.

Police charged him with one count of bank robbery Wednesday. He is from Harrisonburg and additional charges are expected. His name and mugshot are not available because he is a minor.

“This successful investigation would not have occurred had it not been for the assistance from the citizens of the City of Harrisonburg. The Harrisonburg Police Department continues to investigate and compare the most recent bank robbery to the one that took place in April at the Bank of America. Investigators will determine if there are similarities and links between these two incidents.” said Lt. Chris Rush, Division Commander of the Criminal Investigations Division.

HPD is encouraging anyone with additional information to contact the Criminal Investigations Division of the Harrisonburg Police Department at 540-437-2640.

Anyone with additional information, who wishes to remain anonymous, is asked to call Crime Solvers at 540-574-5050. Tipsters may also text “HPD” plus the tip to CRIMES (274637).
