If it can happen on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, it can happen anywhere. Prepare yourself and your family accordingly. Abby Patkin reports for the Boston Globe:
Armed robbers held up a bank on Martha’s Vineyard Thursday morning and escaped in a stolen vehicle, officials said.
“Active police scene at Rockland Trust in Vineyard Haven,” Tisbury police wrote on Facebook. “Confirmed armed robbery with firearms.”
Tisbury Police Chief Chris Habekost told the Vineyard Gazette that the robbery occurred around 8:15 a.m., when three people armed with handguns entered the building. They tied up bank staff and escaped in a stolen vehicle, which later turned up near the Manuel F. Correllus state forest, the news outlet reported.
No one was physically injured.
In a later Facebook post, the Tisbury Police Department confirmed it is receiving assistance from the FBI and Massachusetts State Police.
The robbery took place at the Rockland Trust at 257 Edgartown Road, according to FBI spokesperson Kristen Setera.
“The FBI is responding to the scene and is assisting our law enforcement partners in the investigation,” Setera told Boston.com. She declined to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation.
