Banks have set up shop inside supermarkets for years. It’s for convenience. One such male thought that he would help himself to some cash by robbing the branch. Cameras in supermarket branches are just as good, if not better, than conventional branches. Add in the fact that the4 store has an array of their own cameras and you have a suspect that is as good as caught. Philly cops and the FBI are looking for this guy.
The FBI/PPD Violent Crimes Task Force is seeking the public’s assistance to identify and locate the subject responsible for the robbery Saturday of the Citizens Bank branch located inside the ACME Market at 6601 Roosevelt Boulevard. At approximately 12:15 p.m. on July 14, 2018, the subject entered the store and approached the bank counter. He pulled a demand note from a folder he was carrying and handed the note to a teller. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, he fled the area of store on foot and was last seen heading on toward Roosevelt Boulevard. The subject is described as a black male in his 30s, approximately 5’10” tall, medium build, dark complexion.
