Loudoun County, VA (February 2, 2021) – A Washington, DC man is facing charges in Loudoun County for the armed robbery of a Sterling bank last month.

Amobi C. Agu, 36, was arrested last week by the Washington Metropolitan Police Department and held on felony warrants obtained by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. An investigation conducted by the LCSO connected the suspect to the January 2 armed robbery of the Bank of America in the Dulles Crossing Plaza.

In the robbery, the suspect approached a teller, displayed a firearm, and demanded cash. The suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money. There were no injuries sustained to anyone inside the bank.

The suspect is facing charges in Loudoun County for armed robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. 

Agu remains held in Washington, DC on unrelated charges pending extradition. 

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is working with other law enforcement agencies to determine if the suspect is connected to similar cases in the region. The LCSO would like to thank the FBI, the Montgomery County (MD) Police Department and the Washington Metropolitan Police Department for their assistance in the investigation.
