GREENFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a man they say robbed three Franklin County banks over the last few weeks.

Investigators allege that 38-year-old Richard May is responsible for the robberies of a TD Bank branch on Main Street on February 17 and March 3, as well as one at a Greenfield Cooperative Bank branch on Federal Street this past Wednesday.

Greenfield Police Det. Lt. Dan McCarthy says that May, who has a lengthy criminal record, should be considered armed and dangerous because May allegedly pointed a black semi-automatic pistol at tellers during each of the robberies.

Police believe that May was dropped off in Holyoke following Wednesday’s heist and has ties to Worcester and Boston. He was last seen wearing grey basketball shorts, a black shirt with “Enchanted” written across it, and Nike sneakers.

May also has plugs in both ears and has tattoos on his right arm.

Anyone with information on May’s whereabouts is urged to call your local police department, Greenfield Police at (413) 773-5411, or the Mass. State Police.
