An alleged bank robber was caught after he fled the scene with a bag of cash, Bridgeport Police said.
The incident took place around 10:27 a.m., Wednesday, June 26, when police received a 911 call that the TD Bank at 975 Madison Ave., was being robbed, said Terron Jones, spokesman for the Bridgeport Police.
The employee who called 911 was able to provide police with enough information for responding officers to quickly identify a fleeing vehicle as belonging to the alleged robber, police said.
Dispatchers were able to quickly relay this information to responding units and the vehicle was located minutes later traveling on Wood Avenue.
Uniformed officers and plainclothes detectives were able to grab the vehicle's driver, Marcus Wright, 21. The passenger, Shawn Lamar Moore-Harris, 21, fled the vehicle and was caught after a foot chase, Jones said.
The cash from the bank robbery was recovered from the vehicle as well as two BB handguns that were replicas of real firearms, Jones said.
Detectives determined Moore-Harris was also involved in a break-in last night in Guilford, and have been in contact with Guilford Police.
Moore-Harris, who was determined the alleged robber, will face charges of robbery, weapons offenses, and interfering with police.
Wright will be charged with conspiracy at robbery and weapons offenses.
