Vergennes cops seeking man who stole cash from bank

VERGENNES — Vergennes and Vermont State police as of Wednesday morning were still searching for the man who stole cash on the previous Friday afternoon from the downtown Vergennes branch of People’s United Bank.
Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel said that at about 2:20 p.m. on Friday a man entered the North Maple Street bank, displayed a knife to the teller and demanded and was given an undisclosed amount of money, and left the bank and headed north on the street. Merkel said police do not know if he continued to flee on foot or by a waiting vehicle.
“We don’t know where he went,” Merkel said.
He described the suspect as a stocky white man between five-foot-six and five-foot-eight, weighing between 180 and 200 pounds. Merkel said witnesses reported the suspect was wearing a blue hoodie with a logo on the left breast; green or brown Carhartt pants; a dark balaclava or scarf covering most of his face; hiking boots or sneakers; dark sunglasses and black gloves.
Anyone who saw anything or has information is asked to contact Vergennes police at 877-1152 or state police at 388-4919.
