Police release photo of robbery suspect

ANDOVER — Village police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are looking for a white male who made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from the Andover Bank’s main office, 19 Public Square, Monday afternoon.

Nobody was injured, nobody saw a gun and the robbery was over in seconds, with most customers not knowing it took place.

Descriptions obtained from witnesses and images from the bank’s security cameras showed the suspect to be a white male in his late 30s or early 40s, about 5-foot 8-inches tall and 175 pounds. He was wearing a dark-brown Carhartt-type jacket and dark-color jeans. He had a black stocking cap on his head, was wearing glasses and had several days of facial-hair grown.

Police suspect the man had an accomplice waiting in a vehicle some distance from the bank. A possible getaway vehicle was reported to the police as being on Route 7, north of town, around the time of the incident. That vehicle is described as a light-blue Chevrolet pickup truck, early 1990s make, with a white stripe. It had a hook-up for a plow in the front but no snowplow on it. The witness recalled seeing Pennsylvania plates on the vehicle.

The vehicle was running and had a driver in it.
