Police say that at around 1:25 p.m., officers responded to the Bank of America, at 420 Campbell Avenue, for the report of a bank robbery.
An investigation then led police to the suspect, who was identified as 32-year-old Paul Porto.
According to police, Porto provided the bank teller with a note that requested money. Once Porto received an undisclosed amount of money, he fled the area.
Officers then put out a broadcast to neighboring agencies, and with the help of New Haven police, Porto was located and taken into custody.
Porto was charged with robbery and larceny and held on $100,000 bond.
