Police: Mass man arrested on attempted robbery charges

SCHENECTADY - A Massachusetts man has been arrested on attempted robbery charges.

Police say that 28-year-old Sean McKeever of Lunenburg Massachusetts was dressed in a "disguise" and was noticed by bank employees in the bank parking lot on Thursday at the Union Street branch of the Bank of America.

Schenectady Police were called but were unable to initially locate McKeever. 

40 minutes later Schenectady Police say he returned, still wearing the "disguise" and asked to speak to the manager.  Police were then called.

The bank was closed and evacuated while K9 units from Schenectady Police and the New York State Police searched the building and a nearby car for explosives.

All were cleared and the bank reopened.  There were no injuries.

McKeever was charged with attempted robbery and attempted grand larceny.  He was arraigned in Niskayuna Town Court.
