A man arrested shortly after a robbery occurred at a Belleville bank Saturday remains in jail on a parole violation, but the search for another subject involved in the robbery is ongoing, police announced Monday.
According to a statement posted to the Belleville Police Department’s Facebook page, the 36-year-old man who officers arrested shortly after the incident that occurred at noon Saturday at Scott Credit Union on Carlyle Avenue has not been charged in the case. Officers “have identified a person of interest in this case and are currently following leads attempting to locate this subject,” the statement said.
Belleville Police Sgt. Mark Heffernan would not release the identity of the person of interest, but said police “believe there is a link” between that person and the man who was arrested Saturday.
Witnesses to the robbery told police a black man wearing a blue shirt and blue shorts who left in a silver Chrysler 300 with white stripes on the hood committed the crime. One witness provided a partial license plate number.
Police arrested one of the suspects shortly after the robbery Saturday on West Boulevard at Mallard Drive, but Heffernan wouldn’t say whether the man who was arrested was the one who entered the bank and demanded cash.
