RI Credit Union robbed at gunpoint


BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (WPRI) — Police in Burrillville are investigating a robbery, and Chief Stephen Lynch tells 12 News it’s the first he’s had to deal with since taking over the department in 2013.

According to Lynch, a white male wearing a mask, gloves and a hat entered the Rhode Island Credit Union on North Main Street in Pascoag around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday and displayed a handgun.

The suspect fled on foot with an unspecified amount of money. Responding Burrillville and Glocester police officers were unable to locate him.

Investigators are now reviewing surveillance footage from the bank as they work to identify the suspect.

On Wednesday, police released an image of the suspect from inside the bank and surveillance video of him walking outside.

Anyone with information on the robbery or the suspect is asked to call Burrillville detectives at (401) 568-6255.
