Search For Bank Robbers Stops I-84 Traffic

Manchester police are looking for suspects in an afternoon bank robbery.

Police say two men wearing masks  and brandishing handguns robbed the drive-through teller at the Bank of America on West Middle Turnpike in Manchester Tuesday just before 3  p.m.

A short time after the robbery a Manchester officer spotted a  vehicle matching the one used by the suspects and stopped it on  Interstate 84 eastbound in Vernon.

The stop affected traffic on Interstate 84 for a while,  but the vehicle turned out not to be the one they were seeking.   The  occupants of the vehicle were released and the search for the  suspects continues.
