Milford bank robbery suspect arrested in Rhode Island
MILFORD–A suspect has been arrested after a bank robbery.
On August 19, the People’s United Bank located at 1636 Boston Post Rd. was robbed at about 4:15 p.m. Police say a man entered the bank through the front door, and passed a note to the teller stating he had a weapon and demanded money from the drawer. The suspect never showed his weapon, and after he was given the money he ran away towards Woodruff Road.
The suspect was described at the time as a thin white man wearing an over-sized gray t-shirt, cargo shorts, a blue baseball cap and sunglasses on the hat.
On September 10, Milford police, along with East Providence, Rhode Island police, took custody of Robert Chadronet, 37, of 400 North Broadway, East Providence, in regards to the People’s United Bank robbery.
Chadronet, who is known as the “Teardrop Bandit” from a string of previous bank robberies, was located at his home in Rhode Island and extradited back to Connecticut. Chadronet is being held on $250,000 on the charges of robbery in the second degree and larceny in the third degree.
