Sovereign Bank Robbed; Suspect ID'd
Cranston Police believe Vaughn Watrous, of Providence, is responsible for this morning's bank robbery.
Cranston Police are looking for a man who robbed the Sovereign Bank at 555 Reservoir Avenue just before 10 this morning — and they say they know who did it.
Vaughn Watrous, 35, with a last known address of 185 Vermont Ave., Providence, is wanted for committing the robbery.
Cranston Police Major Robert W. Ryan said Watrous walked into the bank and handed the teller a note written on an ATM envelope.
The suspect never mentioned or showed any weapon during the robbery and ran out the door towards Burnside Street after taking an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspect's description: white, between 20 and 30 with dark hair in a pony tail, was quickly determined to be the same description of the suspect sought in connection with recent robberies in Providence, Ryan said. That led police to obtaining a warrant for Watrous' arrest.
