Malden bank robbed

Thursday, May 23, 2002

MALDEN - Police are searching for three armed black males in connection with a bank robbery at First State Community Bank on Douglas Street in Malden Wednesday morning.

Initial information at presstime was sketchy, but indicated that no one was injured in the robbery, which occurred at about 9:15 a.m., said Troy Karlish, a Malden police officer.

Two vehicles stolen from Kennett that police believe were used in the robbery were later found abandoned, Karlish said. Law enforcement agencies were working together to search the area, and believe a third vehicle may have been involved, Karlish said.

As of press time today, the police had not released further details.
