Courier: At least $37K was stolen during Swansea armed robbery

SWANSEA, Mass. (WPRI) — A courier who was robbed at gunpoint outside a Swansea bank earlier this week told police he believes the suspects followed him there after he picked up tens of thousands of dollars from five marijuana dispensaries.

 

One of the suspects, 29-year-old Giovany Fouyolle, was arrested that same afternoon. He currently faces several charges, including armed robbery with a firearm and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

 

However, during Fouyolle’s arraignment on Wednesday, his defense attorney claimed his client was “nowhere near” Swansea at the time of the robbery, telling the court he has video evidence that Fouyolle was actually at a casino.

 

Police are now said to be reviewing that evidence as they search for the second suspect.
