Police seek two in Peabody bank robbery

PEABODY — Police say the two men who robbed the North Shore Bank on Route 114 yesterday afternoon didn’t show a weapon or make threats during the incident.

No injuries were reported.

Detective Michael Crane said the robbery was first reported to police around 2:30 p.m. and appeared to involve two men: one who entered the bank first, walked up to the customer service counter, then left, and a second who entered the bank shortly thereafter and approached the teller to demand money.

“We can assume he was casing the place,” Crane said of the first man.

The duo made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. Crane said they left the scene in a gold sedan.

Police released photographs of the two men yesterday afternoon, and Crane said he was confident that somebody would recognize them. The one who actually demanded money from the teller was described as a white man in his mid-30s, about 5-foot-9. He was wearing a striped cap and sunglasses at the time.

“We’re fairly certain somebody’s going to identify the suspects,” Crane said.

Police are urging anybody with information to contact detectives at 978-538-6364. Anonymous tips can also be provided through Citizen Observer or MyPD, which are both accessible through the department’s website at www.peabodypolice.org.
