Police: Bank Robbers Found Sleeping In Stolen Car In Hudson Valley
Twin brothers who are accused of robbing a bank were arrested in the Hudson Valley after they were found sleeping in reported stolen car.
Vance A. Coffin and Vincent T. Rollins, both 50 of Hartford, C.T., are accused of robbing a bank last month in Connecticut, fleeing the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Tuesday morning, Connecticut State Police notified the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office that the wanted pair were believed to be in Brewster.
The sheriff’s office dispatched about a dozen investigators and plainclothes officers to search Brewster and Southeast for the brothers. Just before 1 p.m., they were found sleeping in a 2010 Toyota Corolla parked off the side of Old Milltown Road in Southeast, near the East Branch Reservoir.
Authorities later determined that the car was reported stolen last week from Colchester, C.T. A North Carolina license plate displayed on the car had been reported stolen from Newton, N.C., police say.
Both were charged with third-degree criminal possession stolen property, a felony, and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor.
The brothers are awaiting arraignment in Putnam County. They will soon be extradited back to Connecticut on the bank robbery charges.
