Police are investigating a bank robbery in Southington Friday morning that led to school officials putting schools in secure mode.
Police said there was a bank robbery at the TD Bank branch located at 121 Main St. at 11:14 a.m.
A man who appeared to be in his early to mid-30s went up to the teller station, attempted to make a fraudulent transaction with another person’s identification, then handed the teller a note demanding money when it did not work, police said. The robber implied he had a weapon, but did not show one, and fled with cash.
While the secure schools mode was in effect, no one was allowed to enter or leave the building.
The bank robber was described as thin and around 6-feet tall. He was wearing a North Face knit hat, a dark sweatshirt, dark jeans and work boots.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Southington Police Department at 860-621-0101.
