"The frequency of crooks hitting this one bank is getting disconcerting," says Eugene Delgaudio, Sterling Supervisor.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is investigating an armed bank robbery at the Wells Fargo Bank in the Community Plaza in Sterling, Virginia.

Shortly before 4PM today, two unknown males entered the bank and both men brandished a firearm. One of the armed suspects threatened a customer with the weapon and demanded cash. Both suspects were wearing all black and masks. The suspects were further described as being tall with a larger build.

The suspects fled the scene in a light in color, possibly silver or white, late model Nissan Altima.
