A Dorchester man charged for a Harvard Square bank robbery yesterday was already under investigation for other local bank robberies, including one at a Santander Bank branch at 487 Harvard St. in Brookline, Brookline Police reported tonight.

Brookline Police said that, under questioning yesterday, Jacob Pimentel, 31, admitted to the Brookline robbery and three other bank robberies in nearby communities. Police added the FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force was already working with local police to collect enough evidence to charge him.

Pimentel also had outstanding warrants in Brighton and Waltham district courts, police said.

Innocent, etc.
