GLOUCESTER — Chief John McCarthy reports that a wanted suspect has been arrested and is being held on a number of outstanding arrest warrants after he was located during the course of an investigation into a bank robbery in the city on Monday morning.
Gloucester Police responded to the Institution for Savings branch on Parker Street at 9 a.m. Monday for a report of a robbery. Police dispatched multiple cruisers and investigators to the scene and to the area surrounding the bank. During the early stages of the investigation, which included reviewing video surveillance footage and interviewing witnesses, a suspect who is known to police was identified.
The name and description of MICHAEL ROBINSON, AGE 40, OF GLOUCESTER was broadcast over the air to surrounding law enforcement agencies and to State Police.
As a result of the investigation, ROBINSON was located on a bus in Lynn and was arrested by the Lynn Police Department. ROBINSON is being held on multiple probation violation arrest warrants out of Gloucester District Court. Additional charges may be forthcoming as the investigation into the bank robbery continues.
