Holy Crap!

Woah!  My city played host to a bank robbery today.

Here is a link to the story from the Lawrence Eagle Tribune.

Allow me to quote the story. Please note that there is no author listed on the page.

METHUEN – Police are investigating an armed robbery at the TD Bank at 228 Haverhill St.

A white man with a goatee robbed the bank of an unknown amount of cash at 12:15 p.m. He told the teller he had a weapon, but one was not shown, said Lt. Michael Pappalardo.

The robber, who is about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, was wearing dark pants and a dark, hoodie-style sweatshirt, he said.

The bank was closed after the robbery so police could investigate.

Every officer on duty along with state troopers working in the area responded to the bank after the robbery was reported. “It appears he slipped through,” said Pappalardo, noting officers are now “pursuing several leads.”

A picture of the robber was distributed to officers on duty at 1:50 p.m.

It’s weird.  My wife and I have been to that bank.  I have never had a personal connection to a bank robbery before.  It feels sort of weird.  Let’s hope we don’t get this feeling again, eh?

ADDENDUM
The Methuen Police Department released this photo of the suspect. I don’t know if it will be blocked if I post it here or not, but it’s worth a try.

One thought on “Holy Crap!

  1. Years ago, when I was married to Jennifer’s father, he was a customer in a bank when it got robbed. He had just made a deposit and only had around $5 on him, but the robber took that along with his watch and the other customers’ possessions. He got several phone calls from the FBI, and he had to go to court to testify when the robber finally got caught and went to trial. Good times!
