Bank heist Town Center!


Bank of America hit late this morning. APD and Chief Livingstone on the scene. Robber last seen heading south towards Granby.

UPDATE: 1:45 PM They got him! Perp in custody. As I said in Comments: It would not take long.

Another clear indicator of how desperate some people are getting. I can't remember ever hearing of so many bank robberies in such a short period of time.
Soon they may have to go back to having a fulltime armed guard on duty during the banking hours

Did not take long to catch the one over in Northampton last week.

These days, with cameras everywhere, I don't think it will take long to catch this one.

So many kids that grew up in Amherst are getting in trouble.

My thoughts are with all their parents

It's the truth. This crap starts in the home. You can do all the interventions you want in the school system, it's what goes on at home that makes the perp. get a life!

10:17. what the heck do you know? My kid didn't grow up with drugs in the house, and we spoke often that it is not ok with us and set that example. I know other Amherst families did too. But when its being sold on the bus, in class and is socially accepable in the school they spend the majority of the day it is a hard fight for parents, plus look at how pot was celebrated in the center of our town. I have asked for some kind of school program since middle school. Nothing! What do you think we should do, kick them out? We've cut off all $$, and provided expensive personal counseling, what would YOU do now? Really, I would try anything at this point!

From William Oldershaw mug shot, it seems clear that he is a methamphetamine addict. The scabs on the face, the dark circles under the eyes. He must be on drugs to try something this stupid.

You cannot blame the parents for their offspring's actions. Once a person hits 18 they are responsible for their own actions.

I have 4 kids - all brought up under the same roof with the same amount of parenting. Three of them are fine, happy, contributing members of society. One of them is constantly in trouble with the law. It breaks a parent's heart when this happens but ultimately, once the "child" hits 18, they make their own choices and are responsible for the life they are creating for themselves. This is not the life I would have chosen for my child but I have no control over it - and I refuse to let his bad behavior suck me down into his misery. My heart breaks, and my life, and my other kids' lives, go on.
