GRANBY, Conn. (WTNH) -- Two men were arrested for a bank robbery that took place in Granby late Tuesday morning.
The incident occurred just after 11:30 a.m., at the Windsor Federal Bank, located at 21 Hartford Ave.
Police said a lone male wearing a mask, gloves and hoodie vaulted the counter and removed cash from the drawers. No weapon was displayed and no injuries were reported.
The suspect fled on foot to a waiting vehicle with driver near Shattuck Avenue.
Granby Police Chief Carl Rosensweig was operating an unmarked police vehicle on Hartford Avenue and saw a male wearing gloves run from the area of the bank. Several seconds after he radioed for additional police units, the bank reported the robbery by 911.
Chief Rosensweig was able to obtain the registration of the vehicle, a black Toyota Camry and keep it in sight as it exited the area east on Rt. 20 into East Granby. A marked Granby unit joined the unmarked unit, and the suspect vehicle engaged them in pursuit when signaled to stop.
The suspect vehicle continued on Rt. 20 to Kripes Road in East Granby, where it was stopped at Nicholsen Road by Sgt. Charette and Chief Rosensweig.
The two suspects were arrested.
The money taken from the bank, $11,720, was recovered from the vehicle.
Gregory Orton, 25, of Hartford, was charged with second-degree larceny and third-degree robbery. Bond was set at $100,000.
Police said Orton was convicted of robbing another bank several doors down from this location in an identical manner in 2009.
Jack Britton, 40, of Danbury, was charged with second-degree larceny, third-degree robbery, operating under suspension, reckless driving, engaging police in pursuit, and interfering with an officer. Bond was set at $100,000.
