    He reportedly told the teller he had a gun and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

    According to police, 43-year-old Chester Greene, of New Haven, drove the suspect from the scene in a black Honda.

    Police found the car in the parking lot of DJ Liquors shortly after the robbery and spotted Greene walking from the package store.

    Greene was held on a $250,000 bond and is due in court July 14.

    Police are still searching for Greene's accomplice and are asking for help in identifying him.

    Anyone with information is urged to call Hamden police.
