Vernon police searching for bank robber


Police in Vernon are searching for a man who made away with an undisclosed amount of money from the People's United Bank in Vernon.

Police were called to the bank in the Tri-City Plaza around noon Saturday.

The suspect is being described as a thin to medium build white male in his 20s.

The suspect was seen wearing a dark colored knit hat, black sunglasses, gray Nike hooded zip front sweatshirt with a red shirt underneath, blue jeans and white sneakers.

The suspect fled the bank on foot to an awaiting vehicle.

No weapons were displayed.

Due to the time of day and the very busy plaza, police believe that someone may have seen the suspect flee and might have information that may be important to the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Vernon Police Department at 860-872-9126.
