CHESTERFIELD – A sus­pect in a Mid­loth­ian bank rob­bery who was wounded by a po­lice of­fi­cer af­ter a chase down Mid­loth­ian Turn­pike has been iden­ti­fied as a county res­i­dent and charged with a sec­ond bank holdup. The Chesterfield County Po­lice Depart­ment said Allen E. Piner, 45, of the 7900 block of Province­town Drive, re­mains hos­pi­tal­ized af­ter he was shot by a po­lice of­fi­cer fol­low­ing the rob­bery on Wed­nes­day, Oct. 11, of the Ar­gent Fed­eral Credit Union branch at 1901 Wal­mart Way. Of­fi­cers re­spond­ing to the rob­bery re­port spot­ted a ve­hi­cle driven by a man match­ing the de­scrip­tion of the rob­bery sus­pect and tried to stop the ve­hi­cle. A pur­suit fol­lowed, end­ing in a field in the 9400 block of Mid­loth­ian Turn­pike, where the sus­pect fled on foot into some nearby woods. Of­fi­cers fol­lowed on foot and or­dered the sus­pect to stop. Po­lice said the sus­pect dis­played a weapon and one of­fi­cer fired his ser­vice weapon, hit­ting the sus­pect. The of­fi­cers gave him first aid and brought him out of the woods, and he was taken to an un­spec­i­fied lo­cal hospi­tal. In re­la­tion to the Ar­gent rob­bery, Piner has been charged with rob­bery, pos­ses­sion of a firearm dur­ing the com­mis­sion of a rob­bery, pos­ses­sion of a firearm by a con­victed felon and car­ry­ing a con­cealed weapon.
