— 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.

    No we are not the bright ones- letting him go in 5 years for armed robbery.

    Criminals aren't very bright.

    The SAME bank? This is why criminals are not the brightest crayons in the box. Can they tack on another ten years for being dumb?

    Well, he's a real smart one now isn't he??? But from the picture, I still wouldn't have known it was him. Maybe a teller that worked there when he robbed it the first time recognized him. Big dummy!
