Arrests made after Poultney robbery

V ermont State Police have arrested two people following a bank robbery in Poultney, Vt., and say they believe they are the same people involved in at least four other local bank robberies, including two last week in Granville.

Shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, a woman wearing a black hoodie handed a teller at the Citizens Bank in downtown Poultney a note saying she had a weapon and wanted cash. This was the same method a similarly dressed woman used Oct. 25 at the TD Bank in Granville, and the same way a man robbed the same TD Bank Saturday morning.

The man is also suspected in two other robberies last month, one in Rutland and the other in West Rutland.

Wednesday’s robbery came at 3:05 p.m., and the woman fled on foot. Police were searching for a black Ford Taurus in connection with the robbery. The car left Poultney at a high rate of speed after the robbery.

The two were arrested at Paul’s Pizza in Castleton and transported to the state police barracks in Castleton.

Granville Police were on the scene of the Poultney robbery and were in Castleton as well.
