Latest Area Bank Robbery Resembles Lynnfield Incident
Lynnfield bank robbed May 9, Salem bank hit for second time this year on Sunday. Suspect in both cases a 5'10 white male in his twenties who may or not be unarmed.
The bank robbery that occurred Sunday afternoon in Salem bears a close similarity to the circumstances that were reported in the robbery of the Eastern Bank in Lynnfield on Monday, May 9.
During the May 9 robbery in Lynnfield, a white male suspect, 5'10 and in his 20s, was described. Reports at the time indicated that the man had not shown a weapon and had left the scene on foot.
At that time, Lynnfield Police noted that the suspect in that robbery matched the description of the culprit in other recent area robberies.
Then, a Sunday, May 15 report from Salem Patch describes a similar robbery taking place at the TD Bank on Loring Avenue in that city. In that case, a white male suspect, 5'10, in a baseball cap and with no visible weapons, also ran out the door, in this case around the back of the building. In these pictures, it appears that the suspect strolled into the bank he was about to rob while talking on his cell phone.
In fact, that Loring Avenue bank also happened to be robbed over the winter by a separate crew of bank robbers that were targeting the area at the time. At least one arrest has since been made in that string of robberies.
