A man has been arrested for allegedly robbing banks in Limoges and Hammond.
A 33-year-old from Limoges has been charged with robbery using a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon, careless use of a firearm, seven counts of pointing a firearm, and more, after a pair of bank robberies in the region.
Police say on January 25 a masked man entered Hammond’s Caisse Populaire Trillium with a weapon, demanded money, and after receiving an “undisclosed amount,” ran away. Then, on February 15 at about 5:45 p.m., police say a similar incident occurred at the Caisse Populaire Trillium in Limoges. No one was injured in either robbery.
The man was arrested on March 1 and is in custody awaiting a bail hearing on March 9 in L’Orignal.
