Wethersfield Bank Robbery May be Linked to Vernon Holdup

A $1,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the woman who robbed a Liberty Bank in Wethersfield on Friday, and police said she may also be responsible for holding up a Vernon bank earlier this week.

According to police, a woman wearing sunglasses and a winter hat entered the Liberty Bank at 1190 Silas Deane Highway around 11:30 a.m. and handed the teller a note demanding money. She got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect stands between 5 feet 6 and 5 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing dark clothing and black gloves at the time of the robbery.

The Connecticut Bankers Reward Association is offering a $1,000 reward in exchange for information leading to an arrest.

Wethersfield police said they're working alongside Vernon police to determine whether Friday's robbery is connected to a similar incident in Vernon on Tuesday.

Anyone with information is urged to call Wethersfield police Det. Morris at 860-721-2869.
