GEORGETOWN – Chief Donald C. Cudmore reports the Georgetown Police Department has charged a man who allegedly robbed a local bank earlier last month.
NICHOLAS O’NEIL, AGE 37, OF METHUEN, is charged with Unarmed Robbery.
On Sept. 11 at approximately 3:45 p.m., Georgetown Police were dispatched to Salem Five Bank, 2 East Main St., for a report of a bank robbery. Through a subsequent investigation in conjunction with the FBI Bank Robbery Task Force, police determined that a suspect, later identified as O’NEIL, allegedly entered the bank and passed a note demanding cash to the the teller. No weapon was shown and he was given an undetermined amount of cash.
O’NEIL was taken into custody by the Tewksbury Police Department on Tuesday, Sept. 22, on an unrelated charge, in addition to the Georgetown charge.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
