Police have arrested two men suspected of collaborating to rob the Citizen's Bank on Washington Street in the South End on Tuesday morning.
Avree Evans, 37, of Cambridge, was arrested on robbery and drug charges, and Liquarry Jefferson, 33, of Roxbury, was arrested for allegedly driving Evans around without a license.
Police were called to the Citizen's Bank at 1355 Washington Street at 11:45 a.m. on Tuesday, September 24, for an automatic hold up alarm.
Police said witnesses told them a man entered the bank, pushed a customer away from the front of the line, and passed a note to the teller written on a napkin. Witnesses said the suspect told the teller to read the note, and also said, "Don't give me the dye pack.” The suspect was given a bag full of an undisclosed amount of cash, police said. He then fled out of the bank towards Waltham Street.
Police said the suspect was described as a black male with a medium complexion, 5’9” to 6’, 180 lbs, wearing a black North Face hooded sweatshirt, a dark blue jacket, blue jeans and wearing light blue gloves entered the bank.
Police said they noticed a white car traveling in the area of Tremont Street near Waltham Street with a person who was attempting to slouch down to hide himself in the back of the car. Police stopped the car, and identified the passenger was the suspect, they said.
Both suspects will be arraigned at Boston Municipal Court, on Wednesday, September 25, 2013.
