STATE POLICE INVESTIGATE DAYVILLE CREDIT UNION ROBBERY
On 01/03/2013, at about 9:40 a.m., the Connecticut State Police at Troop D received a 911 call from staff at the Charter Oak Federal Credit Union, 589 Hartford Pike, Dayville, reporting that they were just robbed.
Troopers from Troop D and Detectives from the Eastern District Major Crime Squad responded to the crime scene. Troopers obtained descriptive information of the suspect and suspect vehicle, causing Troopers to conduct an extensive search of the area utilizing manpower and State Police K-9 teams. All surrounding police agencies were advised of this robbery.
State Police Detectives determined from witnesses that a male subject had entered the bank and waited in line for the next teller. The suspect approached a bank teller and handed her a note saying it was a robbery. The teller handed him an undetermined amount of cash from the drawer. The suspect fled from the bank and got into a vehicle that was parked on the west side of the bank. The suspect vehicle was seen leaving the bank out of the entrance the wrong way onto westbound on Rt.101. The suspect vehicle was described as a sedan, possibly a Hyundai, with Florida registration plates. The first two letters on the plate were “AC.”
The suspect is described as a white male, age 40 to 50, 5’6”tall, slim build, scruffy light-colored facial hair, wearing a dark jacket with gray sleeves with a “3” on the right sleeve, white gloves, white hoodie under the jacket, black pants, and dark rimmed glasses. No weapon was displayed or implied. No one was injured.
State Police Detectives located and interviewed several witnesses.
Troopers are asking anyone who may have seen anything prior to or immediately after this robbery to contact Troop D Detectives at (860)779-4900. All calls will be kept confidential.
