  BB&T Bank Is Robbed
     Fairfax County police are looking for the person who robbed
  the BB&T Bank at 13360 Franklin Farm Road on Wednesday,
  Dec. 10. Police say he was armed and robbed the 23-year-old,
  female teller at gunpoint.
     The incident occurred around 5 p.m. when a man displaying a
  handgun vaulted the counter, confronted the teller and demanded
  money. He received an undisclosed amount of cash and fled. No
  one was injured.
     The suspect was described as possibly black or Hispanic, with
  light skin. He was about 5 feet, 7 inches, with a stocky build. He
  wore a blue, hooded sweatshirt, khaki pants, white shoes and a
  black mask.
     Detectives have linked him with the Dec. 1 bank robbery of
  the BB&T at 2513 Fox Mill Road in Reston. Anyone with infor-
  mation is asked to contact Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477,
