Barrington police continue ‘Bearded Bandit’ investigation


A police investigation into the “Bearded Bandit” remained underway on Monday.

Barrington Police Chief John LaCross said law enforcement officials were still searching to find the true identity of the man who robbed a pair of Barrington banks recently.

The suspect, who stands between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10, is better known by the moniker “Bearded Bandit.” The unknown culprit sports a full beard in each of the incidents. He also wears a blue knit cap and brown sweatshirt.

Chief LaCross said Barrington police are working with other local police departments to cultivate information on the suspect and anyone with information is asked to call the department’s tip line at 437-3933.

The most recent incident believed to be connected to the bandit was a robbery in Warwick on Saturday, Sept. 15. At about 3:45 p.m., a man matching the bandit’s description reportedly held up a TD Bank on West Shore Road.

The suspect is believed to be connected to a pair of robberies in Barrington, one of which took place at TD Bank on Sept. 11 and another of which took place at Bank of America on July 26.
