Guys claiming to have bombs holding up banks

Codman Square and Brighton suspects

Codman Square and Brighton suspects.

The FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force is investigating two recent bank robberies involving a man telling a teller he's packing a bomb.

The task force reports that around 1:22 p.m. on March 1, a man walked up to a teller at the East Boston Savings Bank branch at 305 Talbot Ave. in Codman Square in Dorchester:

[He] stated, "Just give me the cash", and presented a demand note that stated, "I DEMAND$ 20,000 LOOSE CASH, NO DYE PACK OR I KILL EVERYONE, I HAVE A BOMB. The teller provided the cash from her drawer. [He] took the cash and stated, "If you say anything to the cops, you're going to get killed".[He] fled the bank on foot.

The task force suspects he's the same white or Hispanic guy who robbed a Citizens Bank branch at 420 Granite Ave. in Milton the same day. His description matches that of the suspect wanted for holding up the Codman Square bank in January.

Around 1:55 p.m. on March 6, a black man walked into the TD Bank branch at 391 Market St. in Brighton Center, told a teller he had a bomb and demanded money, the task force reports. He got money, then fled on foot.

Just use a gun like a normal robber. What is wrong with you?
