Authorities are searching an area near Route 1 and Essex Street in Saugus for a suspect believed to have been involved in a bank robbery in Peabody, State Police said.
After the robbery, three suspects fled south on Route 1, then turned around and drove north on the highway into Saugus, police said. Two suspects have been captured, but the third fled on foot and is being pursued by state and local police, said State Police spokesman David Procopio.
The State Police have brought in K-9 units and a helicopter to help in the search, Procopio said.
