YORK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — A joint investigation by three local jurisdictions has led to the arrest of man accused in numerous bank robberies.

U.S. Marshals and the Newport News Police Department Fugitive Unit arrested 51-year-old Reginald Vann Robinson at his Hampton home, according to the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office.

The arrest comes after an extensive investigation into numerous bank and credit union robberies by the sheriff’s office, Newport News police and Hampton police.

Robinson was charged with attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery in connection to an incident at the Credit Union Service Center on Route 17 in York County, June 13. He was also charged in connection to robberies in Hampton and Newport News.

The sheriff’s office said another agency is also investigating Robinson, although no specifics about that were released. Until that investigation is complete, Robinson’s photo will not be released to the public.

Robinson is being held at the Newport News City Jail.
