No Leads on Barrington Bank Robber

Bearded man who robbed the Bank of America on County Road last Thursday afternoon still eluding police here and in three other towns where he has robbed banks.

Still no leads on the bearded man who robbed the Bank of America in Barrington last Thursday, July 26.

“It’s definitely the same guy” who has robbed four banks in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, said Barrington Police Chief John LaCross.

But the search has produced “no leads” so far, LaCross said Monday morning.

The bank robbery took place at approximately 3:30 pm.

The man showed no weapon, LaCross said, and he fled on foot behind the bank on County Road “with less than $2,000.”  The exact amount of money stolen has not been revealed.

The bank robber was described as a white male in his 30s, about 5'10" tall, with a full beard and wearing a blue knit cap and a brown long-sleeve hooded sweat shirt.  See the surveillance camera photos.

Detectives and patrol officers conducted interviews with potential witnesses for several hours after the robbery, according to the police report, including with two men making a delivery at that time, people at Kids Kove playground and on Markwood Drive and in the library.

Reportedly, a man matching that description was spotted leaving the CVS/pharmacy about 5:30 pm, according to the police report.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Barrington police on its confidential tip line, 437-3933, or at the detective division, 437-3930.
