MEDFORD, Ore -- The Medford Police Department says it found the suspect of a bank robbery, because of an alert citizen.
The suspect robbed the US Bank inside Albertsons last Saturday. The police department was not getting any tips about the robbery all week. On Saturday, someone from the Jackson County Scanner Page called MPD. The person noticed a vehicle in the north Walmart parking lot that was very similar to the truck police were looking for.
Officers went to the parking lot to check it out. During that time they also saw the suspect. Both the vehicle and suspect matched the descriptions officers had. Police took the man into custody. The suspect is 37-year-old John Peter Bosco. Medford Police says he came to Medford from New York. The department says he left town after the robbery, but then came back.
Police are actively searching for a suspect who robbed a bank early Saturday Morning.
Medford Police says that the suspect robbed US Bank inside of Albertsons off of Ross Lane, just before 11 a.m. The man has been described as a white male in his fifties, and weighs about 230 lbs. He was seen wearing a black hat with a Ford emblem, blue jeans, and a gray sweater.
The suspect left the area in a maroon 2004 Dodge Dakota single cab.
Medford Police are asking the public to call 541-770-4783 with information, or 911 if seen in person.
