Groton Town police make arrest in nearly year-old bank robbery
Groton — Just short of a year since a man robbed the Chelsea Groton Bank on Gold Star Highway, police have made an arrest in the case.
It was on Nov. 15 last year that a man entered the 1319 Gold Star Highway building and demanded money be put into a paper bag. The man didn’t use a weapon or imply that he had one. He left on foot with an unspecified amount of cash.
Detectives recently developed new leads in the case, police said, and as a result obtained an arrest warrant for 36-year-old Kenneth J. Nelson of Framingham, Mass.
According to police, the Massachusetts State Police Fugitive Unit found and held Nelson on Wednesday. Police said Nelson waived extradition and was turned over to Groton Town police, who traveled to Massachusetts and took custody of him.
Charged with second-degree robbery and third-degree larceny, Nelson was due in New London Superior Court on Friday.
