Vernon Police have arrested a 32-year-old New Jersey man accused of robbing a local People’s Bank on May 25.
Arthur Allyn, of Oakhurst, New Jersey, is accused of giving the teller a note and taking off with cash.
Police said no one was injured during the robbery.
Detectives tracked down the vehicle used in the robbery and connected it to Allyn, police said. They are still investigating and an additional arrest is expected.
Allyn was extradited from New Jersey on July 17 and charged with robbery in the second degree, conspiracy for robbery in the second degree, larceny in the third degree and conspiracy for larceny in the third degree.
Bond was set at $250,000. Allyn was held overnight at the Vernon police station and will be arraigned today at Rockville Superior Court.
Vernon detectives continue to investigate the June 21 robbery of the same People’s Bank Branch and said they do not believe that the two robberies are connected.
On Friday, June 21, a 6-foot-tall masked man robbed the bank. He was wearing a black T-shirt over a gray sweatshirt, brown sweatpants and black sneakers.
Police urge anyone with any information about the June 21 robbery to call at 860-872-9126. Callers can remain anonymous.
