PRESS RELEASE

BANK ROBBERY – ARREST MADE

At approximately 2:55 pm Monday afternoon, the Falmouth Police Department responded to a bank robbery at the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank on Palmer Avenue in Falmouth. Witnesses stated that a lone male suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

While searching the surrounding vicinity, Officer Thomas Maguire saw a man emerging from the woods near Depot Ave. Officer Maguire encountered the man and identified him as Michael McLane, a 31-year-old man from Assonet, MA. Officer Maguire discovered that McLane had an outstanding arrest warrant and placed him under arrest. McLane struggled with Officer Maguire, but the Officer was able to restrain him without injuring him until other Officers arrived to assist. Once McLane was placed into handcuffs and brought to his feet, he suddenly struck Officer Maguire with a head-butt.

Subsequent to the arrest, the continuing investigation uncovered evidence that linked McLane to the bank robbery.

Michael McLane has been charged with the following offenses: Unarmed Robbery, Larceny, Assault and Battery on a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest.

The Falmouth Police Department was assisted in the investigation by the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office, The Massachusetts State Police, and the FBI.

The incident remains under investigation and no further information is available at this time.

I live on Turner rd. People start speeding as soon as they come off Sandwich rd. It ridiculous. I ve had crashes in front of my house. Want a tip, put cops about 1/4 mile before Landers/Turner intersection at 6-7am. You’ll catch many speeders

That's a tough curve. Hope all is well.

Had a audi vs pole is Hanson... Are poles just magnetized atm?

Right now in bourne , a woman versus Pole, last night in Mashpee a truck snapped a pole what is it with people slow down

Could have really hurt somebody

Way to many accidents on this road. Possibly Black Ice 🧊

And he didn't even have a license

Maybe they can fixe the other one down the street while they are at it

Shouldn't it be Monday the 19th not Wednesday

That's what made my power flicker early this morning.

Can’t these drunks stay at home?

The Falmouth Police Department want to thank Papa Gino's / D'Angelo's for their support during these unsettling times. It's gestures like this that remind the men and women of law enforcement of why they entered public service. Community is not just a catch phrase in the FPD Mission Statement, it is the way we do business in Falmouth. Two of our newest officers (K. Kester on left and E. Garrison on right) receiving the donation form their representative, Patrick. ... See MoreSee Less
