WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) – A man who attempted to rob a bank wearing a fake beard on Saturday was arrested Monday evening.

Authorities say 52-year-old Timothy Lee Crissman attempted to rob a BB&T Bank in the 6700 block of Mooretown Road Saturday morning.

According to reports, Crissman allegedly went inside the business and asked for money without displaying a weapon. He eventually left on foot without any money.

Police arrested Crissman Monday night after receiving tips from locals of his whereabouts.

Sheriff Diggs from the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office thanked residents for aiding authorities in the investigation, leading to Crissman’s arrest.

“Our community has been very supportive in helping us identify and find suspects in many cases. The crime tips from the citizens are so valuable in helping keep our crime rate low,” said Sheriff Diggs.
