Virginia Beach man faces charges of robbing five banks www.privateofficer.com
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. March 27 2012 (AP) A Virginia Beach man faces charges of robbing five banks in the city since January.
Leonard Harrison Teagle is being held without bond at the Virginia Beach Correctional Center.
Virginia Beach police said Monday that the 54-year-old Teagle was arrested Friday after a robbery at a Wells Fargo Bank branch.
Police say the bank reported the robbery as officers were following Teagle. They saw him leave the bank and followed him because he matched the description of the suspect in the earlier robberies.
Two earlier robberies occurred on the same day. Another Wells Fargo branch and a BB&T branch were robbed on Feb. 7.
The other robberies occurred at two other Wells Fargo branches on Jan. 30 and Feb. 23.
