SBPD nab bank robber

Posted: Updated:

Police say he robbed a bank, but didn't get far.

David Parker, 52, of Burlington allegedly walked into the South Burlington Branch of People's United just after 1 p.m. Thursday. He allegedly demanded money but did not show a weapon.
South Burlington Police Chief  Trevor Whipple says the bank's location has made it a frequent target of criminals over the years. "It has some of the best access. It's close to the highway. It's close to all major thoroughfares in our community. There's a lot going on; it's easy when you step out the front door to then blend in with the regular life transpiring in our community," he said.

Whipple says it's policy not to disclose how much is taken, but he characterized the sum as enough to take a short vacation, but not to retire. He says Parker had cash on him and resisted arrest when they caught him trying to board a CCTA bus at the mall's bus stop just about a block away.
