MANSFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

Connecticut State Police arrested a Willimantic man after troopers found him in possession of a motor vehicle used in a bank robbery overnight. 

Mervin Bundy, 42, was charged with reckless driving, disobeying a signal from an officer, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs/alcohol, possession of drug paraphernalia and illegal possession of narcotic. Police said charges related to the bank robbery are pending. 

The suspect, who was later identified as Bundy, was caught on camera at a TD Bank North branch on Storrs Road around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Police said Bundy demanded money from the teller. Authorities said Bundy ran off with an undisclosed amount of money and got into a small pick-up truck and took off.

No injuries were reported in the incident. No weapon was shown during the robbery. 

Troopers spotted the same vehicle used in the bank robbery at the Hawthorn Motel on Spencer Street in Manchester around 1:30 a.m. Troopers arrested Bundy even though he "tried to elude capture." 

Police said Bundy was in possession of drugs and money. 

Bundy, who is being held on $100,000 bond, is scheduled to be arraigned at Manchester Superior Court on Thursday morning,
