'South Side Bandit' pleads guilty to bank robberies


At the time of his arrest he was the subject of a multi-state undercover operation that stretched from Boston to Plaistow to Andover and, finally, Methuen.

Police said Alarcon had been tailed from Boston and that he first went to Plaistow where the Ocean Bank was robbed on May 14, and then drove to The Loop.

Authorities said two employees at the Ocean Bank in Plaistow provided them with a description of the getaway vehicle and a partial license plate number that led investigators to Alarcon.
