Two Kingston residents indicted for bank robbery
Two Kingston residents have been indicted by a Plymouth County grand jury on charges of unarmed robbery in connection with several bank robberies on the South Shore.
The robberies, which occurred in April, took place in Kingston and Plymouth.
Matthew Ryan, 33, and Carrie Sumner, 36, are charged with robbing the Eastern Bank in Plymouth this spring by passing a note to the teller demanding money. Ryan then fled through the woods, and according to police, he was chased by an officer who was able to identify the getaway vehicle that Ryan used.
Ryan was arrested shortly after robbing the Eastern Bank in West Plymouth on Route 80 when his car was spotted by a State Police helicopter in the parking lot of Wal-Mart in Halifax.
Ryan and Sumner have also been connected to two other robberies that occurred during March in Kingston, a month before the robbery in Plymouth.
Sumner was driving the vehicle that Ryan was spotted in after the Plymouth robbery and has been charged with negligent driving as well.
