New Haven County resident Bernadette Volikas, of Milford, was arrested on Friday, June 2 for the robbery which took place on Thursday, May 4 in Shelton.
Volikas was quickly identified as a suspect as Stratford Police Department investigated a similar robbery, which occurred in Stratford in February, said Shelton Police Det. Christopher Nugent.
Officers from Shelton and Stratford responded to Volika's residence and took her into custody on a warrant held by the Stratford Police Department charging her with first-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny, Nugent said.
Volikas who has been incarcerated since the arrest in May was placed on a $20,000 bond for the Shelton Bank Robbery and remained in the custody of the Department of Corrections.
