WILBRAHAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Wilbraham police have released new surveillance images of a suspect in a bank robbery that caused several schools to be placed on lockdown.

Wilbraham Police Sgt. Daniel Carr told 22News that the suspect, who was wearing a surgical mask over his face, walked into the Citizens Bank at 455 Main Street at around 11:00 Tuesday morning and handed the teller a note demanding money. The suspect made off with about $1,000 in cash.

All public schools in Wilbraham and Hampden, as well as the Wilbraham and Monson Academy, had shelter-in-place orders in effect while police searched for the suspect.
