Bank Robbery

The interesting thing about Virginia’s bank robbery statute is that the suspect doesn’t have to accomplish the robbery in order to be guilty. Instead, merely entering a bank with a deadly weapon with the intent to commit larceny qualifies as felony bank robbery.

§ 18.2-93. Entering bank, armed, with intent to commit larceny.
If any person, armed with a deadly weapon, shall enter any banking house, in the daytime or in the nighttime, with intent to commit larceny of money, bonds, notes, or other evidence of debt therein, he shall be guilty of a Class 2 felony.
