Fall River Police Searching for Would-Be Bank Robber
FALL RIVER — Fall River Police are searching for a woman they believe attempted to rob a bank in the city on Monday before thinking the better of it.
On January 28 at approximately 2 p.m., Officers of the Fall River Police Department's uniform division responded to Fall River Municipal Credit Union located at 1110 Robeson Street in response to an attempted robbery.
On arrival, officers were told that a white female approximately 5-5 in height with a medium build, wearing a black fleece, black knit hat, black glasses, and white sneakers entered the bank and approached the teller. Upon reaching the teller, the female said "give me a minute" and walked over to the check writing counter, where she wrote a note on a piece of paper. The female ripped the note into several pieces, dropped it in the trash, and walked out of the bank.
Due to the female’s behavior, bank employees retrieved the note which read "give me the money." Police were then notified.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation can contact the Fall River Police Department Major Crimes Division Detective John McDonald at (508) 324-2796 or call anonymously on the TIPS line at (508) 672-8477.
