Police have arrested the man who they say robbed a Stamford bank and threatened employees with a bomb.
According to police, 29-year-old Janssen Anthony Lewis walked into the TD Bank on 1625 Summer Street on Friday and told employees he had a bomb. Police said Lewis threatened to “push the trigger” if anyone set of the alarm, then approached a teller and demanded $5,000 cash.
Police said soon after, Fairfield police contacted the department to report having noticed a suspicious person matching Lewis’ description in town Thursday. They had identified Lewis as the suspect.
Stamford police arrived at Lewis’ address Friday afternoon to find a red Saab parked in the driveway with cash, a black bag and dark clothing inside, which they believed to be evidence of the bank robbery. Police said they secured the vehicle and are working to obtain a search warrant.
Lewis turned himself in to Stamford police around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.
He was charged with first-degree robbery and third-degree robbery and is being held on a $100,000 bond, police said.
