    Police have arrested the suspect in a string of bank robberies in the tri-state area, including Greenwich and Fairfield.

    Authorities have arrested the man who they say is responsible for a series of bank robberies sweeping the eastern seaboard, some of which shut down the Fairfield and Greenwich Metro-North stations on separate occasions.

    Luis Alomar, 37, was arrested in Medford, N.Y. by FBI and police from several departments, including Westchester, Suffolk, Yonkers and Greenwich, according to police.

    Metro-North service was stopped in Greenwich after a Chase Bank was robbed in late August.

    Less than a month later, the Fairfield train station was shut down after two local banks were robbed within 10 minutes of one another.

    Fairfield police said they believe Alomar is responsible for the robberies in Greenwich and Fairfield. Police also believe Alomar is connected to robberies in New Jersey, New York and Florida.

    It's not clear if he's been formally charged.
