    Authorities are searching for the man who robbed an East Windsor bank at gunpoint last month, and a $5,000 reward is available for information leading to his arrest.

    According to police, the suspect walked into the Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union at 127 Prospect Hill Road around 1:20 p.m. July 21. He took out what surveillance footage shows to be a small black semi-automatic handgun, then walked to the teller counter and demanded money.

    He left on foot. A K-9 officer tracked him to the parking lot of a nearby Burger King, then lost the scent, police said.

    Bank president and CEO John Holt said the suspect made off with a significant amount of money. Holt said the FBI is assisting East Windsor police with the investigation.

    The suspect is described as a tall black man wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with white laces, a white shirt and light-colored sweatpants with pockets. His face was covered with a dark mask up to his eyes, and he was wearing dark gloves and a dark-colored baseball cap with a gold circular sticker under the brim, according to police.

    Anyone with information is urged to call East Windsor police Det. Scott Roberts at 860-292-8240 ext. 112 or email robertss@eastwindsorpd.com.

    All calls will remain confidential.
