NH man charged with robbing Tewksbury bank twice in one month – Boston 25 News

TEWKSBURY, Mass. – A New Hampshire man will face charges in connection with two robberies at the same Tewksbury bank in March.

Eric Mohan, 47, of Manchester, was arrested Monday in Hampton, NH, in connection with a robbery in that community, police say. Tewksbury Police have obtained a warrant for Mohan’s arrest for armed robbery while masked and unarmed.

Police say Mohan walked into Salem Five Bank in Tewksbury on Monday March 7 and asked the tellers for money. The bank was robbed again on Wednesday March 30, during which the suspect demanded cash while claiming to have a gun, police say.

Tewksbury Police said Mohan was also behind the second robbery.

Mohan appeared in New Hampshire court on Tuesday. He should be extradited to Massachusetts.

“The valuable information obtained from the second robbery at the Salem Five Bank helped us lead to this arrest and gather information regarding several other bank robberies in the area,” said Tewksbury Police Chief Ryan Columbus, in a statement. “I would like to commend the efforts of the Tewksbury police officers involved in the investigation and all other agencies, including the FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force, who assisted us in solving these cases.”

Police believe Mohan is linked to other cases in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
