Several police vehicles with blue lights flashing sirened their way to the East Boston Savings Bank Branch at 708 East Broadway on Tuesday morning, July 5. South Boston Online, which is located nearby, spotted four BPD vehicles. Two of these dispersed to drive around the neighborhood, as if they were seeking someone who was on foot. The Bank Branch itself was closed for a while, presumably to allow the police to investigate exactly what had happened. If it was an attempted robbery, this would be the third such incident in South Boston this year. The other two were suspected to be drug-related incidents.
