CANTERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police are asking the public for help in identifying a man that held up a bank on Westminster Road Friday morning.
Just before 9:10 a.m., surveillance photos show the suspect entering the Canterbury branch of Savings Institute Bank & Trust, located at 180 Westminster Road, also known as Route 14. According to Troopers, the suspect entered the bank, implied that he had a weapon, and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The thief then left the bank on foot, and ran west on Route 14. State Police believe he may have fled in a dark-colored sport utility vehicle.
The suspect is described as a white man, standing 5′ 7″ tall, in his late forties to early fifties with a brown beard. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a maroon sweatshirt, blue jeans, and a black New York Yankees baseball cap.
If you recognize this man, or have any information that could help Troopers in their investigation, you’re asked to call Connecticut State Police Troop D at 860-779-4900.
