Michael Pacheco is facing charges after police believe he held up two banks and two convenience stores in just over 24 hours.
According to police, on Sunday night a male suspect entered the Tedeschi’s on Pleasant Street and demanded money from the clerk. The employee handed over cash and the suspect quickly took off.
The next morning, a male suspect attempted to rob the Bay Coast Bank – but took off before getting cash from the teller. Just 21 minutes later, a suspect entered St. Anne’s Credit Union and demanded money from the teller, but this time made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Later that night, the 7-Eleven on Pleasant Street was robbed by a male suspect, who told the teller he had a weapon, police said.
In each robbery, no weapon was shown and no injuries were reported.
After a brief investigation, an arrest warrant was issued for Michael Pacheco, 33, of Fall River.
On Tuesday evening, Rhode Island State Police troopers on patrol in Tiverton stopped a car, and found Michael Pacheco inside. He was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Massachusetts.
Pacheco will face charges including unarmed robbery, two counts attempt to commit a crime, armed robbery, and assault to commit a felony.
