Police say alleged bank robber's license plate pointed the way

MANCHESTER – A Bedford man is under arrest, charged with robbing Citizens Bank on Brown Avenue after police tracked him to his home by the license plate on his getaway Audi A4.

Jonathan Talbot, 26, of 11 Lindahl Drive was arrested Thursday at his home where police said they recovered more than $4,000 in cash taken in the 2:30 p.m. robbery of the 2035 Brown Ave. bank branch.

Talbot was arraigned Friday in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester Court Division. He pled not guilty, and was ordered to be held on $25,000 cash bail. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for June 13 at 8:30 a.m.

According to a 38-year-old teller, a man on a cell phone entered the bank Thursday afternoon, went to a desk to retrieve a deposit slip and wrote on it. He then approached the teller, handed her the slip on which he had written a note demanding cash and indicating he had a gun, although none was shown.

The teller complied, handing him some cash from the drawer and the robber left the bank with the money.

Police said the man appeared to be talking on his cell phone the entire time he was robbing the bank.

After he left, the teller and manager locked the door, looked out the window and saw the bank robber get into a gray Audi A4 parked in the lot. They took note of the license plate number and Bedford and state police went to the address of the registered owner, where they found Talbot and arrested him.

Investigators had reviewed bank surveillance which recorded a clear view of the suspect, which police said was Talbot. They also recovered other evidence after searching Talbot's car. No gun was recovered.
