Arrest Made In Windsor Bank Rob

(Windsor, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – A bank robbery investigation in Windsor this morning turned, for a brief time, into an investigation into an explosive device.

Police say it turned out to be a facsimile device that 59-year-old Arthur Thompson was carrying this morning when he was picked up following the  robbery at the Santander Bank on Windsor Avenue.

They say Thompson fled the scene on a bike to elude capture.

The Hartford Bomb Squad arrived on scene and briefly closed the area before it was determined that the “explosive” was actually a dud.

Thompson faces robbery, larceny, breach of peace, and threatening charges and is being held pending his court appearance in Enfield tomorrow.

Police say the money stolen was recovered at the scene.
