PETERBOROUGH - Two Massachusetts men have been arrested for a Nov. 18 robbery of the GFA Federal Credit Union.
Christopher M. Clarke, 27, of 11 Blossom St., Leominster, Mass., was arrested Nov. 23, and Michael M. Mack, 24, of Fitchburg, Mass., was arrested Wednesday.
Police say the two walked into the credit union on Jaffrey Road at 2:35 p.m. and made off with a little over $11,000 cash and fled the area in a Massachusetts-registered vehicle.
Peterborough police investigator Sgt. Michael Chapdelaine and other Peterborough police personnel collected physical evidence from the crime scene that identified Clarke as one of the suspects.
Peterborough and Leominster, Mass., police arrested Clarke Nov. 23 on a warrant for armed robbery. He is currently being held in Massachusetts as a fugitive from justice while New Hampshire authorities apply for a warrant to bring him back to New Hampshire.
Mack was wanted in Massachusetts for several armed robberies in the Fitchburg, Leominster, and Worcester areas. He was arrested Wednesday by Massachusetts State Police in Leominster, Mass., on outstanding Massachusetts warrants for armed robbery and Peterborough's warrant for armed robbery. Mack is currently being held in Massachusetts on several Massachusetts robbery warrants and the Peterborough armed robbery warrant.
Police cited accurate details provided by bank personnel and eyewitnesses as instrumental in finding the two men. Police said some of the cash was recovered at a residence in Gardner, Mass.
