Wellesley Police on Thursday shared more details — including the names of suspects and the charges filed against them — related to the TD Bank robbery that took place just after noon on Wednesday at the Washington Street business.
Police yesterday said one suspect handed a teller a note and that no weapons were used. The update reveals that the note referenced a weapon, though none were shown.
Meanwhile, a driver suspiciously shielding his face inadvertantly grabbed the attention of a Wellesley police officer who circled back to see what the driver was up to. It turns out a witness saw two men dropped off by that same car and walking quickly. Police coralled all three of them, including one in the vehicle, in the Maugus Avenue area.
The individuals taken into custody were 23-year-old Adrian Hutchins of Lowell and 18-year-old Dawnte Richard of Milton, both of whom were charged with Armed Robbery and Conspiracy. Richard was held on $20,000 bail and Hutchins on $10,000 bail. The third party was a 17-year-old who was charged with Armed Robbery, Conspiracy and Carrying a Dangerous Weapon. He was held on $10,000 bail at juvenile detention facility.
(Separately, a Swellesley reader says Police picked up an alleged shoplifter in Wellesley Square on Thursday afternoon. She apparently had bags from Eileen Fisher and other stores.)
