    Not Your Average Bank Robber

    Police in Fairfax County say a woman robbed two banks last month just a few miles apart, and they didn't have to go much farther to find their suspect. (Published Thursday, Aug. 4, 2011)

    Police arrested a Fairfax woman accused of robbing two northern Virginia banks, but her husband says it’s a case of mistaken identity.

    Police arrested Angela Fitzhugh-Hill for the bank robberies at Apple Federal Credit Union's Kingstowne branch and the Springfield Plaza branch.
       
    Police released the surveillance video and posted it on Youtube.
       
    Police said they tied Fitzhugh-Hill to the crimes through her car, which they found parked outside her job.

    Her husband, Raynard Hill, said she is a hard-working and robbery would be totally out of character.

    “Everybody that knows her, knows she’s a very nice lady. I mean, she goes to church. Anyone you talk to will tell you she’s a very kind person,” said Raynard Hill.

    Fitzhugh-Hill was charged with two counts of bank robbery and two counts of threats to bomb.

    Each of the robberies happened within 10 miles of where she lives and works.
