MERIDEN — A city man has been charged in a 2016 East Main Street bank robbery after police matched his DNA to evidence found at the scene.
Julio Camacho, 45, of 167 Liberty St., was charged with first-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny. His bond was set at $100,000 and he is scheduled to appear in New Haven Superior Court on Tuesday.
On Oct. 28, police responded to TD Bank, 733 E. Main St., for a report of a bank robbery. Police spokesman Sgt. Christopher Fry said a man presented a teller a note demanding $3,000. The man received an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene.
Police investigated and collected DNA evidence, which was submitted to the state forensic laboratory. The evidence was later matched to Camacho’s DNA, Fry said.
