Surveillance photo of the April 15 robbery. A five-week FBI-aided investigation led New Haven detectives to arrest a 40-year-old Farren Avenue man who subsequently confessed to robbing two New Haven bank branches in April.

The man robbed the People’s Bank branch at the 150 Whalley Ave. Stop & Shop at 6:39 p.m. on April 14, then the Santander Bank at 215 Grand at 9:20 a.m. on April 15, according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman. He stated that detectives found “evidence of the crimes” as well as “a handgun, ammunition and crack cocaine” in the man’s apartment when they arrested him there Friday. Read a previous story about the robbery here.

Meanwhile, detectives have a new robbery to investigate: of the First Niagara branch at 36 Fountain St. That robbery took place “just before 2 p.m.” Friday, according to Hartman. He said the approximately 6-foot-tall robber “approached a female teller and brandished [a] gun. He then approached another teller and demanded money from her.”
