    Derrick Gilliam, 27, was arrested in connection with the robbery of a TD Bank in Westport and has been extradited from New York to Connecticut.

    One of three men charged in the armed robbery of a Westport bank has been extradited from New York to face charges in Connecticut, according to the Westport Police Department.

    Derrick Gilliam, 27, was arrested earlier this month in connection with the July 2 robbery of the TD Bank at 1111 Post Road East in Westport. He’s the third and final person to be charged in the crime.

    Lancelot Andrew Supersad, 19, and Anthony Santiago, 20, both of Bridgeport, were also arrested in connection with the robbery. Police said one of them had a gun.

    Authorities tracked down Gilliam in Brooklyn, New York, where he had been hiding after fleeing the state, police said. He was taken into custody July 4 and was held as a fugitive from justice.

    Gilliam was extradited to Connecticut on Wednesday. He was charged with first-degree robbery, conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery, third-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny.

    Supersad and Santiago are facing identical charges.

    Gilliam is being held on $250,000 bond and is due in court Thursday.
