Teller IDs Stamford Man as Norwalk Bank Robber

NORWALK, Conn. – A Stamford man has been arrested in connection with a recent Norwalk bank robbery . Norwalk police say the suspect was picked out of a photo lineup "without hesitation" by a bank teller.

Michael Jones, 23, of 40 Stillwater Ave., was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny. Bond was set at $100,000.

The robber walked into the TD Bank at 184 Main St. just before 11 a.m. Sept. 16 and handed a teller a note. She could tell police only that one word that was on the note: "Shoot," written in large letters. The robber left with cash in a bag he had brought himself and walked up Ohio Avenue.

Police say a dye pack in the bag exploded. The robber got $141 in mutilated money, cash that was damaged by the dye pack, and $1,161.

Jones was identified as a suspect by his parole officer, who saw a news report that included a photo released by police.

Police executed a search warrant on Jones' residence Wednesday and said they recovered evidence that may match the dye pack.

The case was investigated by Detective Louis Ginannattasio.
