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.
