BPD is doing a great job, no changes needed! We just have a plague of bank robberies...which are down everywhere else in the country...

Thank goodness!

I'd hate to be arrested for a robbery I would never even contemplate.

The most frequently robbed bank in Boston? New England?

By on

I used to live just behind this bank (then operated by another bank) and I believe it was robbed twice in the year I lived over there. I know it has been robbed several times since and before then.

Anyone know if there are any stats on robbery frequency?

If this bank is indeed

If this bank is indeed frequently held up, I'm surprised they haven't hired a security guard.

mildly disappointed that a timely pun was missed : (

Height requirement?

Rides at Disneyland have height minimums, but there doesn't seem to be one for robbing a bank. It looks like this bank uses counter heights unfriendly to the handicapped and vertically challenged to discourage bandits.

Why doesn't this bank robber

By on

Why doesn't this bank robber have a catchy nickname? If I were him I'd feel miffed. Channel 7 news won't mention bank robberies unless the robber has a snappy moniker.

FBI responsibility

Its usually the FBI that comes up with memorable names so the public might easier identify and report the robbers. Takes some repeat performances to earn a nickname.
