No arrests yet in TD robbery

GREENFIELD — No arrest had been made Monday but Greenfield Police are investigating multiple suspects in connection with the recent TD Bank robberies, said Det. Lt. Daniel McCarthy.

The TD Bank branch at 324 Main St. has twice been robbed in recent weeks, this Sunday and on Feb. 17.

In both instances, the robber has entered the bank brandishing a gun, demanded money from the teller and left via the back door with an undisclosed amount of cash in less than a minute.

McCarthy said the robberies appear to be connected and there is nothing to suggest more than one person is involved.

The Main Street branch was also robbed twice in 2011, first in February and then September. Suspects were arrested in both cases and in neither was a gun shown.

Of the four branch robberies in recent years, McCarthy said two took place on Friday nights and two on Sundays, times when other banks are closed.

The suspect in the latest robbery is described as a white male between 5’5” and 5’8” wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and gloves, sunglasses and a ski mask over the lower part of his face.

The man fled north on foot along School Street, away from Main and a Greenfield Police K-9 followed a trail in the area of Garfield, Walnut and Pond streets, the same general area as last time, McCarthy said.
