NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — North Haven police coordinated with Branford and East Haven officers to arrest 29-year-old Daniel Toce on Monday night, less than 12 hours after he had robbed the Wells Fargo Bank in their town.

North Haven Police Captain Kevin Glenn says that Daniel Toce arrived at the Wells Fargo Bank at 80 Washington Avenue around 12:30 p.m. on Monday. He approached a teller and, passing over a note, demanded money. Glenn says no weapons were displayed, and no one was injured. Toce fled after he was given an undisclosed amount of money.

Glenn says that, with the help of the East Haven Police Department, the 29-year-old East Haven man was quickly identified.

After obtaining an arrest warrant, Captain Glenn says Toce turned up in a Branford motel, where his officers took him into custody without incident, and with the help of Branford police.

Captain Glenn commended the officers involved, saying “the collaboration between the three agencies resulted in Toce being arrested less than 12 hours after he committed the bank robbery.”

Daniel Toce was charged with second degree robbery, and fourth degree larceny. He was held on a $50,000 bond, as is scheduled to be arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Tuesday.
