Norwell: South Shore Bank Robbed

Police are investigating a robbery in Norwell on Thursday morning.

Police say they were called to the South Shore Bank at 400 Washington Street at around 11:30 a.m. Thursday after a man walked into the bank and passed a note to the teller.

Norwell Police, along with the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department and other local departments, searched the area for a suspect described as a man in his mid-fifties, 5-feet-8-inches tall, wearing a black scally cap, black pants, black sweatshirt and black gloves.

Police say the suspect fled the scene on foot, but then may have then gotten into a gold-colored Acura. They did not say how much, if any, money was taken.

Police would not say if they believe this is the work of the serial bank robber, the so-called “Brim Beanie Bandit”. That suspect is known to wear dark clothes and cap, and has been linked to recent bank robberies in Quincy, Braintree, Stoughton, Needham and Dedham.
