Pepperell Police Seeking Suspect in Bank Robbery
PEPPERELL — Chief David Scott reports that the Pepperell Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who allegedly robbed a local bank earlier today.
Just before 11:30 a.m., police responded to the Lowell Five Bank, 65 Groton St., on reports of a robbery. Through witness statements and bank surveillance video, officers learned that a suspect entered the bank and passed the teller a note, demanding money. The suspect then fled the bank with an undetermined amount of cash into a gray sedan parked in a lot across the street.
The suspect is described as a black male, between 35 and 40 years old, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a stocky build. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the “Aeropostale” logo written across it, a collared shirt, black knit hat and black sneakers with light soles.
This incident is under investigation by the Pepperell Police Department. Anyone who recognizes the suspect or has any information on the robbery is asked to call the department at 978-433-2424.
