CHESAPEAKE -- Police are looking for two suspects who have been involved in a dozen robberies throughout the southern Hampton Roads area over the last few years. 

According to Chesapeake police, two armed suspects enter the bank while wearing masks and hats to conceal their identity. The suspects take money from the teller(s) and flee from the area.

While most cases involve two suspects, in a few incidents, only one suspect enters the bank and commits the robbery.  In these incidents, they are believed to be related due to similar comments made, concealment methods, robbery tactics, and getaway strategies.

In the most recent cases the suspects have been described as a white male, 5’6”, and was wearing dark clothing, baseball cap, bandanna over face, camouflage gloves and a black backpack.

The second suspect is a black male, 5’7”, and was wearing dark clothing, baseball cap, bandanna over face, camouflage gloves and a black backpack.

If anyone has information call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
