BURLINGTON — Police Chief Michael R. Kent reports that the Burlington Police Department is investigating a bank robbery that occurred yesterday afternoon.
Burlington Police responded to the Citizens Bank, located at 248 Middlesex Turnpike, at 5:02 p.m. yesterday for a reported robbery.
Employees told police that a man walked into the bank and handed the teller a note, claiming to have a gun in his possession. The suspect received a quantity of cash and exited the bank, headed toward Bedford Street/Rt. 62. He may have escaped in a white SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer or a Mercury Mountaineer.
The suspect is described as having tanned skin, an average build, and facial hair. He was wearing a camouflage coat, black pants, and a furry winter “trooper” hat with ear flaps.
No one was injured during the robbery. The incident is under investigation by Burlington Police Detectives working with the FBI Bank Robbery Task Force.
Anyone who may recognize the suspect pictured in the photos or who may have information is urged to call the Burlington Police at 781-272-1212. All callers may remain anonymous.
