Loudoun County, VA- Two suspects are in custody in connection with a robbery outside of a Chantilly convenience store last month in what is believed to be one of the first cases of ‘bank jugging’ in the Washington, DC area.   


Rodney T. Wilson, 39, and Roderick J. Glenn, 38, of Houston are both being held in Texas on charges stemming from the April 9, 2018, robbery of a victim outside of Croson’s Deli and Market located on John Mosby Highway.  


The robbery is similar to thefts plaguing the Houston area which law enforcement in that area often refer to this practice as ‘bank jugging’. The term describes suspects who stakeout bank parking lots and watch for customers who leave the financial institutions with large sums of money. The suspects, in most cases, then target the victim’s vehicle when it is left unattended – or they engage in a strong-arm robbery.  


In the Loudoun County robbery, the victim, an employee of the store, was assaulted by one of the suspects who then stole a large sum of money. The money was being handled by the victim as part of his businesses operations. 


Detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office learned that the victim had traveled from a bank in Annandale and returned back to Loudoun County where he was robbed. During the course of the investigation, detectives were able to identify the suspects and learned that just prior to the robbery, the suspects had traveled from the Houston area to Washington, DC. They returned to Texas shortly after the incident. 


Wilson and Glenn are both charged in Loudoun County with robbery. Wilson remains held in Texas and is awaiting extradition back to Virginia. Glenn is also being held on local charges out of Texas.


The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is advising individuals and business owners who carry large sums of money back-and-forth to banks to take these following safety measures:


•Be discreet


•Don’t carry money in bank bags, bank envelopes, and other large bags seemingly holding cash


•If possible, stow money in a purse or pocket


•Don’t leave valuables in your car -- it’s like a welcome sign for thieves


•Be aware of your surroundings


•Make sure no one follows you


•If you feel you are being followed, keep driving and call 911
