Bank Robbed in Charlestown

A man wearing a white hardhat, blue nylon jacket, white pants and sunglasses walked into the Cooperative Bank at 201 Main Street and demanded money. The suspect displayed a gun and fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash inside a bag. A dye pack was given and officers located the bag of currency on nearby School Street with the dye pack deployed. The suspect made good his escape.

Thinking the same individual may be responsible for both robberies, Boston Police are advising local bank employees to be on the lookout for anyone entering their bank dressed as a cowboy, an indian chief, or a biker guy.
