Bank robbery thwarted by Nashua branch manager
According to police, a manager of the 500 Amherst St. branch was dropping off some deposit slips at the nearby 7-Eleven store when she saw the man about 4 p.m. Nashua police Lt. Denis Linehan said she continued monitoring the man’s activities when she returned to the bank, watching him closely on security cameras.
Authorities were notified, and police began searching for the man in the vicinity of the railroad tracks that run parallel to Amherst Street, said police.
A police canine responded to the scene and was able to track the suspect’s scent along the railroad line, but was unable to locate the individual, according to police.
The armed man is described as a thin, white male who was wearing dark clothing, including a jacket and face mask. Because of the disguise, an estimated age is not available.
