According to the Justice Department in Boston, 45-year-old Reinaldo Ortiz of Manchester, N.H., was indicted on five counts of bank robbery. He was arrested and charged with a criminal complaint on January 12th.
The charging documents indicate that between March 9 and March 24, 2022, Ortiz drove from New Hampshire to Massachusetts and robbed banks in Fitchburg, Lowell, Chelmsford, Wilmington, and Lexington.
