On Thursday October 8, 2009, at 1519 hours, the Rockland Trust Bank at 430 Main St. was robbed. The suspect entered the bank, approached the teller, displayed a note in one hand demanding money and displayed a gun in his right hand at the same time. The suspect fled out the rear entrance of the bank and was observed getting into a small black motor vehicle with a missing hub cap. The vehicle traveled east bound on Main St and was last seen traveling westbound on Pleasant St towards Waltham.
A Waltham Police detective was able to identify the suspect from surveillance photos. A subsequent investigation by the Watertown Police, Waltham Police and FBI Bank Robbery Task Force resulted in a warrant being obtained in Waltham District Court on Friday October 9, 2009, for David M. Webster of 60 Lowell St. Apt # B Waltham, charging him with Armed Robbery.
At approximately 1230 hours on 10/9/09, the above agencies along with the State Police Stop Unit arrested Webster at his residence in Waltham on the Armed Robbery charge. Webster will be arraigned in Waltham District Court late this afternoon.
