Serial Bank Robber Strikes Again in Killingworth: Source

Investigators believe the man who robbed a bank in Killingworth Friday evening may have committed six other robberies in the state, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.

State police said a man robbed the TD Bank at 184 Clinton Road/Route 81 shortly after 5:30 p.m. Friday. They described the suspect as a thin man in his 30s, between 5 feet 9 and 5 feet 11 inches tall, wearing dark-colored shorts, sneakers, a gray T-shirt and a light-colored baseball cap.

A source with knowledge of the investigation told NBC Connecticut police believe the culprit is a serial bank robber who has committed similar robberies across central Connecticut.

During previous holdups, the culprit wore a baseball cap and appeared to have been talking on a cellphone. He slipped the tellers notes demanding money and threatening them with a weapon, although no weapon was ever displayed.

Several state agencies and the FBI are involved in the case, and the Connecticut Banker's Association is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
