According to a statement by FBI officials, a 46 year old Dorchester woman has been charged in a bank robbery that is reportedly part of a series of heists that federal and state authorities had called on the public's help to solve.
The woman was arrested by members of the FBI's Violent Crimes Task Force during a car stop in Danvers, Massachusetts, thanks to the help of public tipsters. The woman is charged with the unarmed robbery of a Sovereign Bank on Boylston Street on April 13th.
Police and FBI have asked the public for help with this string of hold-ups, including "the April 21 robbery of a Dorchester Sovereign Bank and robberies on Friday at a Citizens Bank in Dorchester, a Jamaica Plain Mount Washington Bank and the Members Credit Union in Dorchester." The FBI put out a statement that said, "this investigation and many others demonstrate the public is always law enforcement's best ally to prevent, detect, and deter crime."
