EAST WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) — An Enfield man is being facing a long list of charges in connection with an armed robbery of a credit union last summer.

On July 21, 2014, police say 27-year-old David McLennon Johnson, of Enfield, robbed the Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union at 127 Prospect Hill Road in East Windsor. Officers said Johnson entered the bank wearing a ski mask and dark clothing, and was carrying a semi-automatic handgun as he demanded money from the staff.

Police said was Johnson able to take a large amount of money in the robbery. He then fled from the scene.

East Windsor officers coordinated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on possible suspects. After a lengthy investigation, police were able to obtain a warrant for Johnson’s arrest.

On Saturday night, officers arrested Johnson at his home in Enfield. He was taken into custody without incident.

Johnson is facing multiple charges including robbery, larceny, and several firearms violations. He was originally held on a $5 million bond. That amount was reduced Monday evening to $750,000. Johnson is due back in court on January 26th.
