FBI Seeks Identities of the Holliston Bandits
Up to $10,000 Reward Offered for Information Leading to Identification and Arrest
The Federal Bureau of Investigation Violent Crimes Task Force and the Holliston Police Department are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the identifications of a masked male and female allegedly responsible for an armed robbery that took place on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at approximately 1:40 p.m. The holdup occurred at TD Bank on 746 Washington Street, in Holliston, Massachusetts.
Suspect #1 is described as a male approximately 5’9” in height with a thin build and a loud, aggressive voice. At the time of the robbery, he wore dark grey cargo pants, a light grey/white zip-up jacket with a hood over his head, black gloves, white sneakers, and a white baby face mask. Suspect #2 is described as a female approximately 5’3” in height with a medium build. During the robbery, she wore dark-wash jeans, a grey vest over a black sweatshirt, black gloves, dark sneakers with white trim, a dark Patriots championship baseball cap, a skull mask, and a black wig with white streaks.
When the couple approached the tellers, Suspect #1 became agitated and jumped over the counter, demanding that the two employees take him to the vault and give him cash. He gestured to his waist, indicating a concealed weapon. During the holdup, Suspect #2 remained on the other side of the counter, holding a revolver with a wooden handle.
Although the suspects fled on foot, there was a dark colored Honda Ridgeline pickup truck in the vicinity that is of interest to investigators.
The public is being asked to review photos and video of the suspects and vehicle bankrobbers.fbi.gov..
“We're asking the public for their help and offering this reward in an effort to generate new leads or intelligence about the subjects,” said Harold H. Shaw, special agent in charge, FBI Boston Division. “By releasing these surveillance photos and video, we hope someone will recognize something about this disguised duo to help us bring them to justice and close this case. We really want to apprehend these individuals before anyone gets hurt.”
“Holliston has a long-standing reputation as a safe community and value the time and effort investigators have put into this case to bring about justice for the victims and others affected by this crime,” said Holliston Police Chief Matthew Stone. “We strongly believe that the offering of this reward will serve as an incentive for any person(s) who have knowledge of this robbery to come forward with information that will lead to an arrest.”
