Dye pack explodes at bank robbery

Salem Police are asking if anyone recognizes the guy pictured throughout this entry, who may or may not have some red ink all over him and possibly even a hand injury since a dye pack exploded on him after he robbed a Citizen’s Bank in Salem, N.H. today.

Police were called to the Citizens Bank branch at inside the Shaws Supermarket at 265 S. Broadway in Salem today at 2:07 p.m.

They learned the suspect pictured in these surveillance pictures passed a note to a teller which claimed he had both a hostage and a bomb.

The note demanded money.

Police say the a dye pack included in the cash exploded as the suspect was leaving the bank, prompting the suspect to drop the money.

Instead of the money, the suspect may have little more than red ink on him, and possibly a hand injury from the explosion of the dye pack, according to police.

A police canine unit went to the bank and tracked the suspect from there to the 7-Eleven on Cluff Crossing Road. The canine lost the track at 7-Eleven.

Police describe the suspect as a white male, 25 to 35 years old, with a black shirt, glasses, and hat.

Anyone with information or anyone who thinks they recognize this fella should call Salem, N.H. police at 603.893.1911, or the Southern New Hampshire Crimeline at 603.893.6600.
