Greenfield bank robber still at large
GREENFIELD — The culprit in Sunday’s robbery of the Main Street TD Bank branch remains at large.
Greenfield police say that a masked man entered the bank with the pistol in his hand, pointed it across the counter at the teller and left quickly with an undisclosed amount of money.
Sgt. Mark Williams of the Greenfield Police Department said Monday police are still looking for the man responsible for Sunday’s robbery, described as a white male, approximately 5 feet, 10 inches tall, wearing dark clothing and with his head and face obscured by a black ski mask and sunglasses.
Police say the man was armed with what appeared to be a black, semi-automatic pistol.
A Greenfield man reported finding a black handgun on the ground at the corner of Conway and Devens streets Monday afternoon. Williams said the gun turned out to be a plastic toy. Williams said it was unclear if the toy was connected to the robbery, but it did not at first glance appear to be the gun shown in the surveillance images.
Police are also looking for a small, silver or gray Jeep Liberty-sized sport utility vehicle. Williams said a bank security employee suggested a vehicle of that description might be involved based on the security tape.
