Longmeadow Police Make Arrest in September Bank Robbery


LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WGGB) — A Connecticut man is under arrest after he allegedly robbed a Longmeadow bank last year.

Longmeadow Police say that back on September 21, a man walked into the Hampden Bank on Shaker Road and passed a note to a teller demanding money.

The suspect then fled on foot towards Enfield, Conn. with an undisclosed amount of money.

Thursday night, following up on new information in the case, investigators questioned and arrested 25-year-old Colin Theobald of Enfield. He is being charged with one count of armed robbery.

Longmeadow Police Sgt. Robert Stocks notes that members of their detective bureau, with assistance from members of the State Police, continued to follow leads from the “very beginning” and that “it was their continued determination that finally led to the identity and arrest of that responsible individual.”

Theobald was arraigned Friday in Springfield District Court.
