Police Nab Suspect in Multiple Robberies

Pittsfield Police Department
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Police have charged a city man in connection with an armed robbery Tuesday night at a local Domino's Pizza and are investigating his connection to four other incidents.

Raheem Garett, 26, is charged with armed robbery (a firearm) and being masked during the robbery. His alleged accomplice, Laura Methe, 21, of Washington, the driver of the sport utility vehicle in which policy say he fled, is facing the same charges, in addition to motor vehicle charges including failure to stop for a police officer.

On Tuesday, Nov. 22, at approximately 10:50 p.m., the Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Domino's Pizza 321 1/2 Elm St.

Witnesses described the robber as a black man with a black hooded sweat shirt, wearing a mask and brandishing a gun. The suspect left in a white SUV. Officers responding to the area located the vehicle traveling on Dorchester Avenue. The operator refused to stop when signaled, and continued at a high rate of speed through the neighborhood streets, finally stopping when blocked in on Parkside Avenue.

During the chase, the passenger was observed throwing a gun out of the window. A BB gun and a mask were recovered along the route the vehicle traveled.

During the investigation, evidence linked the two individuals to the robberies at Domino's on Sept. 1 and Convenience Plus on Oct. 3, as well as attempted robberies at Dunkin' Donuts on Nov. 1 and Lipton Mart on Nov. 21.

Anyone who was in the Elm Street area between 10:30 and 11 p.m. on Tuesday night and may have observations relevant to the investigation is urged to call the Pittsfield Police Department at 413-448-9700.
