SOMERVILLE – On December 5, 2013 at approximately 1:10 p.m. a medium built, white male in his late 30’s, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and dark colored pants, entered the Santander Bank 403 Highland Avenue Somerville, Ma. 02144 and robbed the teller of an undetermined amount of cash. No weapon was shown.

The Massachusetts Bankers Association is providing a reward for information leading to the identity, arrest and conviction of the suspect, and any accomplices who may have assisted him in the commission of this crime.
