Tewksbury Police charge NH man with two bank robberies
TEWKSBURY — Police have charged a New Hampshire man with two recent robberies at the same bank.
Eric Mohan, 47, of Manchester, N.H. was arrested in Hampton, N.H. Monday in connection with a bank robbery in that community. He has also been charged by a warrant with armed robbery while masked and unarmed robbery.
Salem Five Bank on Main Street in Tewksbury was robbed on Monday, March 7. Police learned during the initial investigation that the suspect demanded cash from tellers at the bank.
The same bank was robbed again on Wednesday, March 30. This time, the suspect again demanded cash from bank tellers, and also claimed to have a firearm.
Tewksbury Police detectives collaborated with the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force to identify Mohan as a suspect in the two robberies.
“The valuable information obtained from the second robbery that occurred at the Salem Five Bank helped lead us to this arrest, and gather information pertaining to several other bank robberies in the area,” said Chief Ryan Columbus. “I’d like to commend the efforts of the Tewksbury Police officers involved in the investigation and all of the other agencies, including the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, that helped us solve these cases.”
Mohan was expected to appear in court in New Hampshire on Tuesday. The Middlesex District Attorney’s Office is working on having him transferred to Massachusetts.
Mohan is also considered a suspect in other open cases in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire, police said.
