Alton Police say they know who robbed bank on Oct. 10 but no arrest made yet

ALTON — Police said yesterday they have developed a number of leads and have recovered enough evidence to make an arrest in the October 10 armed robbery of the Meredith Village Savings Bank on Wolfeboro Highway (Rte. 28).

Chief Ryan Heath said he is unable to release the names of the two people allegedly involved in the armed robbery at this time but issued a media statement to allay the fears of the general public.

Heath said he was assisted by numerous agencies and wishes to thank all of them for their assistance.

On October 10 at about 4:34 p.m. a lone male entered the MVSB branch and held one employee at gunpoint while he jumped over the counter and emptied the teller drawers.

Heath said he initially fled on foot but police had reason to think he was picked up by someone driving a silver four-door sedan.

The man was wearing a gray pullover sweatshirt and blue jeans. He was carrying a red duffel bag and wearing a mask.

He said he would make the arrest information public as soon as he is able.
