Quincy police arrested a man who allegedly robbed a Sovereign Bank last Saturday, and is suspected of involvement in four other bank robberies.

According to police, the suspect allegedly robbed a Sovereign Bank on Beale Street on the morning of Dec. 15.

Police then did some investigating into the robbery and checked with local parole officers. One parole officer said the man in the video looked like one of his clients, who had been released from federal prison on Oct. 25, and gave police his name.

Police put out an arrest warrant on the man and picked him up in South Boston on Thursday night.

John L. Haddad, 50, who did not have his own address but gave those of family in Rockland and Weymouth, was arrested and charged with unarmed robbery, stealing from a depository, placing a person in fear, and larceny over $250.

Haddad was brought back to Quincy and held overnight. He was to be arraigned on the charges Friday morning.

According to Quincy police, other charges may be pending, as officers suspect the same man may have been involved in robberies in elsewhere on the South Shore.

Police said the other robberies occurred at an Eastern Bank in Weymouth on Nov. 8, at the Crescent Credit Union in Norwell on Nov. 16, at an Eastern Bank in Norwell on Nov. 18, and at an Eastern Bank in Braintree on Nov. 30.
