Earlier this week, two suspects robbed a bank in Media and tried to escape on public transportation. They boarded Route 101, the trolley I often take from the Springfield Mall near Swarthmore to either Media or 69th Street. From The Philadelphia Inquirer:
Yesterday, after the Sovereign Bank branch at Providence Road and Baltimore Pike in Media was robbed, the two suspects were spotted climbing on board the Route 101 trolley…
News of the robbery went out on the police radio and officers were stationed at every stop along the trolley route, said SEPTA spokeswoman Jerri Williams.
