A man with ties to Ashburn has been arrested in connection with the Jan. 22 Bank of America robbery in Ashbrook Commons.
Josiah J. Jackman, 26, is currently being held in West Virginia on a fugitive from justice warrant.
Utilizing tips from the public, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office identified Jackman as a suspect in the Bank of America robbery, in which a man entered the facility around 2:50 p.m., jumped over the counter, implied he had a weapon and demanded cash.
After the thief made out with an undisclosed amount of cash, police released a description of the perpetrator, noting his yellow and green knit scarf.
Discovered to be staying in Charles Town, W.V., Jackman was arrested Jan. 25 by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
Jackman had previously been identified as a suspect in a Dec. 20, 2013 larceny from a convenience store on Ryan Center Way in Ashburn. In that incident, a large number of lottery tickets were taken from the store; winning tickets were later cashed at convenience stores across the county.
The investigation was conducted jointly between the LCSO and the FBI.
“We are pleased that this suspect has been taken off the streets and his crime-spree is over,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman in a released statement. “The arrest for these crimes reflects well on the hard work of the detectives to solve these cases and the support we have from the community and our law enforcement partners.”
Awaiting an extradition hearing, Jackson is currently being held at the Eastern Regional Jail in Martinsburg, W.V.
