Mass Transit Not Good For Everything


The Route 101 trolley served as a get-away vehicle for the two bank robbers arrested by SEPTA Police at the 69th Street terminal at 10 am today.

The two men are suspected of robbing the Sovereign Bank located at Providence Road and Baltimore Pike in Media.
After fleeing the bank, they were seen boarding the Route 101 trolley for the 25 minute ride into Upper Darby . SEPTA Police Sergeant Don Wagner and SEPTA Officer James Hoback overheard a police scanner broadcast about the robbery and were waiting for the alleged robbers when the trolley arrived at the 69th Street Terminal.
