BOSTON (WPRI) – An unknown suspect in a string of Massachusetts bank robberies is still on the loose and considered armed and dangerous, according to officials with the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force.
The suspect, believed to be connected to at least four separate bank robberies between December 2013 and January 2014, is described as a male in his mid-30s to mid-40s with what are believed to be skin tags or moles underneath his eyes. Law enforcement believe he is “a black male, or possibly Hispanic” and around 5’11″ with a medium build.
During each of the reported robberies, the suspect has worn a dark jacket, dark pants, either black or white gloves, a knit hat and a scarf or ski mask covering his face. He displayed a handgun and verbally threatened bank employees in all four suspected robberies, and – in two of the incidents – he is said to have used stolen vehicles in order to flee the scene.
The robberies in which the suspect is thought to be connected are at the following locations:
- 12/12/2013: Century Bank, Allston
- 1/3/2014: Santander, Brookline
- 1/7/2014: Santander, Brighton
- 1/28/2014: TD Bank, Braintree
The robberies are being investigated by the FBI Boston Division, local Massachusetts police department and the Massachusetts State Police.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone with information directly leading to the arrest of the suspect. The Massachusetts Bankers Association is offering a $2,000 reward.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the FBI’s Boston Division at (617) 742-5533.
