Detectives from Montgomery County Police-Major Crimes Division are continuing to investigate yesterday’s robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank in Rockville. The suspect in robbery, Cary James, 44 years old of the 6100 block of West Gate Gate in Orlando, Florida, was arrested yesterday without incident.

On October 23, Cary James took a taxi to the Wells Fargo Bank on Congressional Lane and entered the bank. He passed a note to the teller demanding money. The teller complied with the note and handed over U.S. currency. James exited the bank and reentered the taxi. The taxi driver, who was unaware of James’ activity, began to drive James towards Washington, D.C. The bank employees contacted Montgomery County Police who responded to the scene and broadcast a lookout for James.

Montgomery County Police were able to locate the taxi on Old Georgetown Road, near the 270 spur. A traffic stop was conducted and James was arrested without incident. Items identified as being used in the robbery were located within the cab as well as the U.S. currency that had been taken.

James was taken to Montgomery County Police Headquarters for an interview. James was identified as a suspect in two robberies earlier this week in Virginia, one in Falls Church and one in Arlington. Both of those jurisdictions, as well as the FBI, responded to Montgomery County Police Headquarters to follow up on their cases and speak with James.
