MANSFIELD, M.A. (WLNE) — A man is being sought by police on Tuesday for his connections to a bank robbery and vehicle theft.

Officials are seeking a suspect that robbed the North Easton Savings Bank on Copeland Drive, just before 2:00p.m., on Monday.

Prior to the robbery, the same suspect stole a 2002 Chevy Silverado, from a car wash on Rt. 44 in Taunton.

“The joy-rider made his way to Mansfield where he donned a blue/black plaid "lumberjack-style" jacket (with red in it) over a dark blue or black hoodie. The suspect passed a note to the teller demanding cash and fled toward the rear of the bank property toward Central St. where he got into the stolen vehicle,” said Mansfield Police.

The suspect is described as white male, believed to be in his 30’s or 40’s, standing around 5’9’’-5-11’’ with a thin build, brown hair, scruffy facial hair, and being very dirty.

Police noted that they believe the suspect may work with his hands because his hands appeared very dirty.

Mansfield Police are actively investigating and ask if you know who he is, to call Mansfield PD at 508-261-7300.

“If you see the vehicle, do not approach, and call 911 immediately. Tell the dispatcher you want to report the stolen vehicle from Taunton used in the Mansfield bank robbery,” concluded Mansfield Police.
