At approximately 11:50 a.m. On Saturday morning, Officer Kyle Besse and Officer Brad Fournier of the Norwich Police Department Patrol Division responded to the report of a suspicious male behind the Dime Bank at 115 West Town Street Norwich, CT. Upon their arrival, both officers found the accused in close proximity to the bank. The accused parked his vehicle in a secluded location near the bank and was found wearing several layers of clothing. The accused was also found to be armed with two knives. The Norwich Police Department Detective Division responded to assist and based on the evidence found during the investigation, officers quickly discovered the accused was plotting to rob the Dime Bank just before closing time. The accused was found to have an extensive criminal history including a prior arrest for bank robbery in New York State in May 2017. Due to the actions of an alert citizen as well as the quick response and thorough investigation of the aforementioned officers, the accused was not able to complete his intended crime. The accused was placed under arrest and held in lieu of a $250,000 bond and was given a court date of July 31, 2017.
