Loudoun County Sheriff's Office seal

A Washington, D.C., man is facing charges in Loudoun County for the Jan. 2 armed robbery of a Sterling bank, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

The Washington Metropolitan Police Department arrested Amobi C. Agu, 36, last week and held him on felony warrants obtained by the LCSO, which connected him to the armed robbery of the Bank of America in the 45400 block of Dulles Crossing Plaza.

In that incident the suspect reportedly brandished a firearm at a teller and demanded cash, ultimately leaving the bank with an undisclosed sum.

Agu, who remains held in D.C. on unrelated charges pending extradition, is facing charges in Loudoun for armed robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Per officials, the LCSO is working with other agencies — including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Montgomery County (Maryland) Police Department and the WMPD — to determine whether Agu is connected to similar cases in the area.
