Berkeley Springs man accused of bank robbery surrenders in Texas

A Berkeley Springs man who is the primary suspect in a December 13 bank robbery in Winchester, Va. turned himself into authorities in Texas on Christmas Day.

Logan Carl Heironimus, 27, has been awaiting extradition from Killeen, Texas back to Virginia to face robbery charges under an arrest warrant obtained by the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, on December 13, a white male in a dark hooded sweatshirt entered the Wells Fargo Bank on Rivendell Court in Winchester and gave a note to a teller demanding money. Police said the man, later identified as Heironimus, allegedly advised the teller he was armed but didn’t show any weapons at the time of the robbery. He then left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police released photos of the robbery suspect, asking for the public to help identify and locate him.

During an investigation of the incident, police determined that Heironimus was the likely suspect in the robbery and began looking for him throughout the area.

Police said they made contact with Heironimus on December 21, and he told them he wasn’t in West Virginia or Virginia, but would return to the area soon.

An arrest warrant was issued for Heironimus shortly after, and on December 25 he turned himself over to the custody of police in Killeen without incident.

The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office said they were significantly assisted in identifying and locating Heironimus by tips from the public. They also enlisted the help of Morgan County law enforcement in their investigation.

At press time, Heironimus had not been charged with robbery in a Frederick County court.
