On March 20, 2020 at approximately 10:58 AM members of the Plainfield Police Department were dispatched to a panic alarm at the Putnam Savings Bank, 11 Pratt Rd Plainfield. While officers were responding to the scene it was confirmed that the bank branch had been robbed. Upon arrival officers were immediately advised that a white male entered the bank, walked to a teller and handed them a note demanding money. The male then fled the bank and ran toward West Parkway where he allegedly entered a white Ford F150 pickup truck. The truck is described to have rust on the driver’s side wheel well, an amber colored safety light on the roof and a ladder rack. The suspect vehicle was last seen traveling on Pratt Rd toward Lathrop Rd. The male was described as being in his late 20’s to early 30’s with light blue eyes, unshaven face, shorter stature wearing a tan colored baseball hat and black zip up hoodie.
Through the use of video surveillance footage in the area officers were able to obtain a registration plate for the suspect vehicle. With the assistance of a Police Department in Massachusetts the suspect vehicle was located. Plainfield Police Department Detectives are currently working in conjunction with detectives in Massachusetts to identify a suspect(s).
