SOUTHINGTON — A Waterbury man faces charges after police said he robbed the TD Bank on Main Street in December.
Zachary Provost, 32, of Waterbury, was charged by warrant on Tuesday with first-degree robbery, criminal impersonation and sixth-degree larceny.
On. Dec. 1, around 11:15 a.m. Provost entered TD Bank, 121 Main St., and attempted to conduct a transaction using someone else’s identification, according to police spokesman Lt. Stephen Elliott. The transaction was declined and Provost gave the teller a note demanding money. He also claimed he had a weapon.
Provost left the bank with about $350, Elliott said. There were no reported injuries.
Additional security measures were taken at Town Hall, the library and local schools immediately following the robbery as police searched for a suspect.
The investigation led to authorities in Avon, Putnam, Massachusetts and New Hampshire identifying Provost as a suspect in bank robberies in their respective towns and states, Elliott said.
Provost was held on $250,000 bond and arraigned in Bristol Superior Court on Tuesday.
