2 Charged in Armed Robbery of Windsor Bank

Authorities have arrested two men accused of robbing a Windsor bank at gunpoint earlier this month, one of whom is also accused of ripping off a bank in East Windsor.

According to the U.S. attorney's office, David Johnson, 27, and Odain Johnson, 21, held up the First Niagara Bank at 2133 Poquonock Avenue on Jan. 10.

Federal prosecutors said the men, who wore masks to hide their faces, jumped the counter, ordered employees to get down and stole $81,530 from the bank vault. The suspects also took an undisclosed amount of cash from teller drawers.

According to a federal criminal complaint charging David and Odain Johnson, one of the men pointed a gun at a customer who interrupted the robbery and told him to get on the ground.

The men then confronted a second customer as they were leaving and said, "If you say anything, we'll shoot you," according to the U.S. attorney's office.

David Johnson is also facing charges in connection with the July 21 robbery of the Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union in East Windsor.

Odain Johnson was arrested in Maine on Jan. 17, according to federal prosecutors. Both suspects are in custody and could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Police in Glastonbury are investigating a similar robbery, but no charges have been filed.
