Reward offered in Wallingford bank robbery


WALLINGFORD — A $2,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of the man who robbed the First Niagara Bank on Main Street in Yalesville (Route 150) Thursday morning.

Lt. Marc Mikulski, police spokesman, said an employee called police about 9:30 a.m. to report the robbery at 316 Main St.

Employees told police a hooded, masked man vaulted the counter and then emptied one of the cash drawers.

The man stole an undetermined amount of money and fled, running south on Main Street.

The reward is being offered by the Connecticut Banker’s Association.

The suspect is described as heavyset, at least 6 feet tall, wearing an all gray sweat suit with the hooded sweatshirt pulled tight around his face, a surgical style mask and clear latex gloves, Mikulski said. No weapon was shown.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (203) 294-2805.
