RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace reports that the Randolph Police Department has arrested and charged a man who allegedly robbed a local bank earlier this month.
LOUIS ANTHONY MAYS, AGE 65, OF DORCHESTER, is charged with one count of Armed Robbery while Masked. MAYS is known to police.
On Friday, Oct. 9 at approximately 2:55 p.m., officers responded to Envision Bank, located at 129 N. Main St., for a bank alarm and reports of a robbery.
Upon arrival, officers spoke to employees of the bank and learned that there were two men involved in the robbery. Through a subsequent investigation, in conjunction with the FBI Bank Robbery Task Force, police determined that one of the suspects, later identified as MAYS, allegedly brandished a firearm and demanded money from the teller. MAYS was given an undisclosed amount of cash before both suspects fled from the bank.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
Police obtained a warrant for MAYS‘ arrest on Thursday, Oct. 15. MAYS was taken into custody without incident at his Dorchester apartment on Friday, Oct. 16, with the assistance of Boston Police and members of the FBI Bank Robbery Task Force.
MAYS was arraigned Friday, Oct. 16 in Quincy District Court.
The second suspect is still being sought by police. He is described as a male, 30-40 years old, approximately 6 feet tall with a slim build. Anyone with information on the second suspect is asked to call the Randolph Police Department at 781-963-1212.
