Saugatuck Bank Robbed Second Time in 24 Hours

A lone male robbed the TD BankNorth branch in Westport’s Saugatuck area today in the second holdup of the bank in less than 24 hours and the third bank robbery in town in eight days, police said.

Today’s robbery occurred about 1:45 p.m. at the branch at 50 Charles St., said Sergeant Arthur Belile.

“The suspect entered the bank and made verbal demands for cash,” he said, adding that he did not display a weapon. The suspect left the scene with an undetermined amount of cash, Belile said.

A state police K-9 unit conducted a track for the suspect which ended on Franklin Street near Ketchum Street, he said.
