A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man accused of robbing possibly two banks in Greenwich.
A man, who police said was English, but spoke with a Spanish accent, walked into JPMorgan Chase Bank on West Putnam Avenue on the afternoon of Sept. 5.
The unidentified man handed the teller a note in which he demanded money, police said. The suspect also threatened to shoot the employee if they did not comply and even, "gestured toward his waistband," police said.
The man fled the bank with "several thousands dollars" and left in "an older black, midsize sedan," police said. The sedan was "dingy or sun damaged" with possibly "lightly tinted or smoked out" windows, according to witnesses.
Police said the same man could be responsible for the People's Bank Robbery, which is located at 410 Greenwich Ave., on Aug. 28.
The search for the suspect caused the New Haven Metro North line to be delayed for about an hour.
Police shut down trains to sweep the area with a K-9, but did not locate anyone. Investigators searched several trains, Metro North officials said.
The suspect has not been located at this time, but police released surveillance pictures of the man.
On Tuesday, the CT Bankers Reward Association announced they are offering $2,000 for information leading to the suspect's arrest.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Greenwich Police Department at 203-618-8866.
