‘Forever Loyal Bandit’: Serial bank robber arrested in Virginia

Falls Church,Va. (WBFF) — The man wanted in connection to a string of bank robberies in northern Virginia has been arrested, county police said.

The Fairfax County Police Department confirmed that Amin Huie, 42, of Arlington was arrested Friday afternoon, June 10.

Huie was wanted in connection with six bank robberies, and one attempted robbery, dating back to June 2014.

After a thorough investigation made in conjunction with the FBI Washington Field Office Violent Crimes Task Force, the Fairfax County Police Department, the City of Falls Church Police Department, and the Arlington County Police Department, officials believe Huie to be the ‘Forever Loyal Bandit.’

In the most recent bank robbery, police were called to the Capital One Bank on West Broad Street and Falls Avenue. Officers issued a lookout broadcast after the suspect fled the location before any officers arrived. A short time later officers from the City of Falls Church located a suspect matching the description of the bank robber and detained him.

Huie was taken to the Arlington County Adult Detention Facility and was charged with robbery, police said.

On Monday, Fairfax County Police Department Major Crimes detectives were able to obtain four more robbery warrants that will be served to Huie upon his release.
