Sovereign Bank in Dumbo Robbed

Sovereign Bank

There was an apparent robbery at the Dumbo branch of Sovereign Bank at 40 Washington Street at approximately 12:45pm today. Initial reports emailed to us and speaking with people in the area say that they were robbed of $35,000. Police have surveillance photos and are reviewing them and fingerprinting the bank for clues. If anyone has any info that may lead to clues, please call 311.

[UPDATE 2: The robber got away with $400.00, not $35,000 as first reported. And he has been arrested thanks to the doorman at 84 Front St.]

[Update: Some people have pointed out that there have been other Sovereign Bank heists lately, according to a story by the Brooklyn Eagle. "According to police sources, the two robbers typically enter the banks, pass a note to the teller demanding money, then flee on foot once bank clerks hand them the money."]

  • The robbery suspect was apprehended 1 day after the robbery, thanks to the doorman at 84 Front St, The Nexus. The police went thru Nexus security videotape, but were unable to find anything. Kenny, the doorman went through the videos himself and he was able to find video of the suspect. Later Friday morning, he saw someone who looked like the suspect walk by. He immediately alerted two cops in Front Street Pizza, who found the man and arrested him. Good thing there are always some cops eating at Front St Pizza!
