CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — The bank robbery suspect wounded by an officer during a chase in Chesterfield County Wednesday afternoon is facing a number of charges, including holding up a second bank back in September.
Officials said officers were dispatched for a report of an armed robbery at the Argent Federal Credit Union at 1901 Walmart Way around 2:30 p.m.
Chesterfield police spokeswoman Elizabeth Caroon said the suspect, 45-year-old Allen E. Piner of the 7900 block of Provincetown Drive in Chesterfield, pulled out a gun and demanded cash before running off with an undisclosed amount of money.
Police gave chase after spotting a vehicle with a driver matching the description of the suspect. That pursuit came to an end about four miles away along the 9400 block of Midlothian Turnpike in a field near Pearson Hyundai.
Video taken outside Pearson Hyundai showed police speeding through the car dealership’s parking lot.
