Fairfield police offer reward for info leading to robbery suspect’s arrest
FAIRFIELD — Police are offering $1,500 for information that leads to the arrest of a man suspected in four robberies in the last week.
Fairfield Police Lt. Antonio Granata said three of the robberies have been at banks in Fairfield, Shelton, Westport and Norwalk. He said it appears the same person is responsible for all four incidents.
Most recently, the suspect is believed to have robbed a People’s United Bank branch at a Stop and Shop in Westport on Monday.
Westport Police are also offering the $1,500 reward for information that leads to the suspect’s arrest and conviction.
“During each of the bank incidents, the suspect has walked up to the teller window and handed over a hand-written note confirming it was a robbery,” Granata said. “No weapons have been shown and there has been no evidence of a weapon being present.”
Police declined to say how much the suspect is believed to have taken.

“In addition, the suspect is seen operating the same vehicle during each incident,” Granata said, noting the vehicle appears to be a blue Hyundai Elantra Sport made between 2016 and 2019.
