Police aim to break bandit's 'good luck' streak


All such information can prove helpful as detectives work a case, Solomon said.

The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force met Monday in Lowell and Thursday in Littleton. On Monday, Solomon said officials reviewed “several different leads” and swapped information from their respective investigations.

“We’ve got some good leads that we’re following,” added Romero. “Just nothing we’ll make public at this time.”

Solomon said officials are reviewing surveillance video taken from areas surrounding banks — including from cameras at businesses and ATMs — in hopes of capturing footage of the suspect. They’ve had no such luck so far, he said.

“We’re going to continue to do it,” said Solomon. “There’s cameras everywhere.”

Solomon has urged the public to report suspicious activity outside banks and businesses.

“Do not approach the suspect,” said Solomon. “He’s armed and dangerous. We just ask that you call 911 and report it.”
