Man Charged for Beacon Cinema Robbery

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A man has been charged for allegedly robbing the Beacon Cinema over the weekend.
 
On Monday, Kyle Richard Wilbur, 32, was arraigned in Pittsfield District Court for Armed Robbery after being identified as the perpetrator of a robbery at the movie theater on Friday around 10:18 p.m.
 
Police responded to a reported armed robbery at 57 North Street where a man claimed to have a weapon and demanded money from a staff member.  After receiving the money, he reportedly fled the scene and was later located by law enforcement based on a provided description and direction of travel.
 
"Due to the initial reports along with witness information, officers were able to obtain a description of the suspect and a direction of travel in which he fled following the incident," the Pittsfield Police Department wrote in a press release.
 
"A short time later, officers came upon a person matching the description at the corner of Francis Ave. and Bradford St. This party, Kyle Richard Wibur, age 32, was subsequently identified as the perpetrator by the victim."
 
Wilbur was charged with Armed Robbery, arrested, and transported to the Pittsfield Police Department after being identified.  No weapon was found on him but cash was recovered and seized as evidence.
 
Earlier this month, PPD arrested Joseph Demary, age 48-year-old of St. Petersburg, Fla., who allegedly broke into the Nissan of Pittsfield Auto Dealership and stole a safe the night before.
