NORWOOD, Mass. (AP) - Police from more than a dozen Boston-area communities are working together to solve 22 robberies at Dunkin' Donuts stores over several months that have stumped law enforcement.
The robberies started in March when a Westwood shop was hit, and have continued up to this week, when stores in Bedford, Burlington and Rockland were robbed.
Police from 16 towns met in Norwood on Wednesday to compare notes.
Police are not even sure all the robberies were carried out by the same person, although there are similarities. The thief is often described as wearing a baggy sweatshirt and a mask, and armed with a knife or gun. Police think a former employee may be responsible given an apparent familiarity with store layouts and procedures.
Dunkin' Donuts' parent company is offering a $10,000 reward.
