GUILDERLAND — Two men robbed a bank in Hamilton Square on Wednesday, Jan. 23, and the Guilderland Police Department so far has no leads, although the suspects may be linked to robberies in northern New York.
The men entered the Berkshire Bank, near the intersection of routes 20 and 155, at approximately 2:50 p.m. in the afternoon, and each went to a different teller with a demand note, according to a release from the Guilderland Police.
“They claimed they were armed, but no weapons were shown,” said Captain Curtis Cox this week.
The suspects left the bank on foot with an undetermined amount of money.
“It appears that these may be the same subjects that robbed banks in DeWitt,” said Cox. The first robbery there took place on Jan. 3, and another happened on Jan. 14. A third robbery took place in DeWitt after the robbery in Guilderland, on Jan. 28.
The descriptions and pictures of the two suspects robbing banks in northern New York matches the description of the men who robbed the Berkshire Bank, said Cox.
“We are working with the police department in DeWitt,” said Cox. “We have a meeting scheduled with them for next week.”
The Guilderland Police are also working with the New York State Police and the State Police Aviation Unit, the release said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Guilderland Police Criminal Investigation Unit at 356-1501.
