Man charged with TD Bank robbery in Southington


The Southington Police Department arrested a man that they believe is responsible for one of the three recent bank robberies in town.

Brandon Dlugos was charged third-degree robbery and fifth-degree larceny after police said he robbed the TD Bank on Meriden Waterbury Turnpike on Monday evening.

According to police, Dlugos handed a note to the teller in which he demanded money. During the robbery, he never displayed a weapon and fled with an undisclosed amount of money, police said.

Dlugos is being held on $200,000 bond and is expected to appear in Bristol Superior Court Thursday.

Police are still looking for the men responsible for the Farmington Savings Bank and 7-11 robberies.

A man walked in to a 7-Eleven around 1:20 a.m. Tuesday and handed the clerk a note indicating he had a gun and wanted money, according to police.

The man also held his hand under his coat, implying he had a weapon, police said.

The clerk gave the suspect money from the cash register and a pack of cigarettes as the suspect fled the store.

He was described as a white man wearing a plain gray, hooded sweatshirt, plain gray sweat pants and was clean-shaven.

He was described as being in his 20s and stood around 6' tall.

In another recent robbery, a man standing around 6' tall walked into the Farmington Bank branch located on Center Street wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with a knit hat under it, sunglasses and jeans around noon on Tuesday police said.

He entered the bank quickly, went up to a teller and demanded money.

No weapon was shown or implied, and the man got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

The robberies are under investigation by the Southington Police Department and at this point, police can not say if these crimes are connected.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call police at 860-621-0101.
