News Roundup: Bank robbery rattles region; public eyes new bridge designs

“I was at a chief's meeting when I first saw the text that there was a robbery on the bank," said Falmouth Police Chief Ed Dunne. "I was thinking the thing I think you were all thinking: ‘ Really? You're on an island.’ But they did.”

Falmouth Police Chief Ed Dunne speaks to reporters after an unsuccessful police action in Falmouth in pursuit of the Martha's Vineyard bank robbers.

This week: an armed bank robbery on Martha’s Vineyard prompts a show-of-force turnout in Falmouth — but the criminals are still at-large as of Friday morning. And, the Cape gets a glimpse of the future, with the unveiling of design possibilities for new bridges over the Cape Cod Canal. And: Governor Baker vetoes a committee proposed to watchdog a release of radioactive water into Cape Cod Bay.
