BINGHAM — A surveillance image of the man who robbed the Camden National Bank branch in Bingham while wielding a hammer last week was released Thursday by the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department.
A security camera captured this image of a man who robbed the Camden National Bank branch in Bingham on Friday.
Police said they continue to investigate the bank robbery that took place around 11:15 a.m. Friday.
The man in the image is heavyset, wearing a black ski mask and light gray sweatshirt. He took an undisclosed amount of cash after threatening the teller with a hammer, police said.
Detectives are continuing to review surveillance tapes from the bank and other downtown businesses as well as interview possible witnesses, according to a news release from Chief Deputy Dale Lancaster of the sheriff’s department.
The robber fled the bank on foot before escaping in a vehicle parked a few blocks away, according to Lancaster. Police do not believe the robbery was connected to another hammer robbery that took place in Clinton on Saturday. Jeremy Holt of Clinton was arrested shortly after that robbery.
The Somerset County Sheriff’s Department asks anyone with information about the robbery to call the detective division at 207-474-9591 or the tip line at 207-474-0230. Individuals with information can also email the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department at email@example.com.
