An apparent mix-up resulted in arrest of a would-be good citizen who was trying to tell bank employees about a person with a gun.  Police say 50-year-old Robert Gursky of Glastonbury wrote a note to a teller at the TD Bank on Main Street,  attempting to inform bank personnel that he believed a person in the bank was armed.

The note prompted the bank to call police to report a bank robbery,  and to close the bank.

No armed person was found,  and Gursky was arrested on a breach of peace charge.
