NORTHFIELD — Police and the FBI are searching for a man wanted in several bank robberies in Delaware, Pleasantville and most recently the local Sun National Bank.
Authorities identified the suspect as Thomas Dougher, a “serial bank robber,” who is wanted in several area robberies, Special Agent Jessica Weisman of the FBI’s Northfield office said Tuesday.
He is wanted in a Tuesday morning bank robbery in Northfield and another that took place Saturday at the PNC Bank on the Black Horse Pike in Pleasantville, she said.
Police were called to Sun National Bank just after 11 a.m. Tuesday for the robbery. Officers were seen inside the building on Tilton Road near Cresson Avenue late Tuesday morning, and customers were not allowed inside at the time.
Dougher was identified as the suspect in a robbery Dec. 20 at Artisans Bank, 2424 Pulaski Highway, in Newark, Delaware, where a man handed a teller a note with demands. The robber ran on foot with cash, according to Delaware State Police.
Dougher is described as a white man between 40 and 50 years old. He was seen at the Saturday bank robbery with a gray beard, authorities said. He is also a known gambler who has ties to Atlantic City, Weisman said.
Delaware State Police said Dougher is thought to be a suspect in bank robberies across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.
