CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Two Petersburg men have been arrested in connection to a bank robbery in Chesterfield County last month. One of the suspects was also charged in connection with a separate robbery in the county in early April.

On Friday, April 14, police say 34-year-old Corey L. Adams entered the Wells Fargo Bank located at 13241 Rivers Bend Road and handed the clerk a note demanding money. Upon receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, Adams fled the bank on foot.
