MANCHESTER, Conn. (WGGB) — A Springfield man has been arrested for robbing a bank because his custom license plate made him easy to find.

Manchester, Conn. Police Captain Chris Davis says Mark Little of Springfield entered the Rockville Bank in Manchester, Conn. Monday and allegedly handed the bank teller a note demanding money.

When the suspect left with the cash, the teller identified gave police a description of the getaway car as a white Ford Crown Victoria with a vanity plate that read “GZUS.”

On Tuesday, Hartford Police spotted the license plate and pulled the car over. Little was taken back to Manchester, where he was identified in a photo lineup.

Police charged Little with first-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny. He was arraigned on Tuesday and held on $125,000 bail.

Both Manchester and Hartford police departments are investigating Little for possible involvement in other bank robberies.
