Suspects in Martha’s Vineyard bank robbery to appear in federal court – Boston News, Weather, Sports


TISBURY, MASS. (WHDH) – Two suspects accused in a Martha’s Vineyard bank robbery last month are due in federal court Tuesday.

Omar Johnson and Miquel Antonio Jones are expected to be arraigned on an armed robbery charge in connection with the Nov. 17 robbery of the Rockland Trust bank in Tisbury.

Investigators say three robbers wearing masks entered the bank, tied up the employees, and used a stolen car to get away with $39,000 in cash.

According to court documents, investigators also found evidence at a nearby farm, including a burn pile that contained pieces of burned white plastic consistent with the masks the suspects were wearing and two buried guns that matched those seen on surveillance video.

One more suspect is still on the loose.
