Messages left with Framingham fire, Framingham police, and Natick police also were not immediately returned.
Prosecutors said Espinosa entered a bank on Worcester Street in Natick late Thursday morning wearing black sunglasses, a black scally cap, a dark T-shirt, a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and black shoes.
He allegedly approached the counter of the bank and demanded cash from the tellers, telling them that he was armed with a gun, prosecutors said.
Espinosa left the bank with about $1,000 in cash, according to the DA’s office. Using surveillance footage, police identified Espinosa’s vehicle.
Authorities then carried out a search warrant at his home, where they found clothing, including a black scally cap and black sunglasses, that matched the clothing worn by the suspect during the robbery, the statement said.
