NORWALK, Conn. -- Police are searching for a woman in a blue Walmart vest who robbed the First County Bank on Connecticut Avenue on Friday morning.
The robbery occurred at 11:30 a.m. at the bank, located at 700 Connecticut Ave. beside the busy Walmart parking lot, police said. The suspect entered the bank and handed the teller a note that implied she had a gun, according to police.
