Spider-Man bandit suspect caught

Fairfax police think they have captured their Spider-Man bandit.

The suspect was wanted in a robbery Monday of a grocery store pharmacist in Burke. The pharmacist said someone entered the pharmacy area of the Giant grocery store and demanded the painkiller OxyContin.

After getting the drugs, the suspect left the store wearing a Spider-Man mask.

The escape of the masked suspect was caught on the store’s surveillance camera.

A police spokeswoman said a tip linked the suspect to a possible vehicle used in the robbery. At about 2 a.m. yesterday, officers stopped a car driven by Dave Edward Wolfe, 25, of Burke. He has now been charged with robbery.
