Massachusetts Chief Helps Foil Bank Robbery Getaway

February 02, 2016  | 

Attleboro (MA) Police Chief Kyle Heagney doesn’t shy away from getting into the action on patrol in addition to his administrative duties.

Heagney apprehended two bank robbery suspects Monday after a wild, 15-mile chase through Norton and Taunton, which ended when the chief and other officers boxed-in the suspects.

The suspects, 18-year-old James Bennet-Werra of Stoughton and Deurique Mendes, 31, of Easton, are expected to be held overnight in jail at the police station pending arraignment Tuesday in Attleboro District Court.

They both face charges of robbery and the driver faces additional charges of refusing to stop for police, driving to endanger and driving with a revoked license. The 18-year-old was found to have a knife.

“I still like to keep my hand in the action. You try not to forget where you came from,”  Heagney, a police officer for 17 years and chief for the past five years, told the Sun Chronicle.
