Natick Police Department
A Framingham firefighter was arraigned Friday on a charge of armed robbery for allegedly robbing a Natick bank, according to a statement from the Middlesex district attorney’s office.
Michael Espinosa, 34, of Framingham was ordered held without bail, pending a dangerousness hearing on Nov. 16, at his arraignment in Framingham District Court.
Espinosa also must surrender any guns he owns to Framingham police, according to the statement.
A message left with Espinosa’s attorney, Charles Hughes, was not immediately returned Friday night.
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.
