On Thursday, June 11, 2020, at 11:48 a.m., Smithfield Police and Detectives responded to Navigant Credit Union, 468 Putnam Pike, for a reported robbery. Initial reports advised a male subject wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a face mask, had run from the bank heading in a westerly direction, after demanding money from the bank teller.
Officers and Detectives arriving on scene checked the area for the male suspect with negative results. According to the clerk, the male subject approached the counter, handed the clerk a light colored nylon bag, and told the clerk to put “100’s, 50’s and 20’s in the bag, No dye packs, No GPS! Hurry the f *** up. Don’t look at me!” The male subject then grabbed the bag and fled the bank on foot. The male suspect was described as a light skinned male, possibly white or Hispanic, approximately 5’6’ tall, thin build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt over a light colored baseball cap, a blue surgical type face mask, jeans, white sneakers and blue rubber gloves. The suspect is seen on video surveillance running westerly toward an apartment complex.
The investigation into this incident remains ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Smithfield Detectives at (401) 231-2500.
