Durham, N.C. — A Hillsborough man faces charges that he robbed two banks and a drug store in Durham and Chapel Hill this September, authorities said Friday.
Orange County sheriff's deputies arrested David Loman, 40, near his home at Lannie Drive on Thursday shortly after a SunTrust bank on Dobbins Drive in Chapel Hill was robbed.
Durham police investigators connected him to the robberies of the BB&T branch at 2726 Croasdaile Drive on Sept. 16 and the CVS drug store at 3573 Hillsborough Road on Sept. 10. In both those cases, a man wore a fake beard.
Loman was charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon in the Durham robberies and one count of common-law robbery in the Chapel Hill bank robbery.
Durham police said Loman robbed the same BB&T bank on Croasdaile Drive in February 2005. He was convicted of common-law robbery in the case and spent about 15 months in jail, according to state Department of Correction records.
He is currently serving 18 months' probation for a conviction for possession of a firearm by a felon, DOC records state. His criminal record, which dates to 1995, also includes a conviction for habitual impaired driving.
