A man who robbed from banks in Silver Spring and Germantown earlier this year is behind bars, police say.
According to a police statement released earlier this week, detectives from the Montgomery County Police Major Crimes Division arrested 28-year-old Pierre Ramon Washington of Temple Hills on Friday.
They believe he robbed from two Capital One banks — one in White Oak on May 22 and one in Germantown on July 24.
Police said an anonymous tip they received on Sept. 25 helped them link Washington to the crimes. Video surveillance captured photos of a man who wore thick-rimmed glasses and his hair in long dreadlocks.
According to police, Washington has been charged with two counts of robbery and is currently being held in the Montgomery County Detention Center on $20,000 bail for the charges against him in Montgomery County.
He also faces theft and robbery charges for cases in Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties. For those charges, he is being held on an additional $40,000 bail.
A lawyer for Washington was not listed in online court records as of Tuesday afternoon.
