SANFORD, Maine — Sanford police have a warrant out for the arrest of a New Hampshire man they believe robbed the York County Credit Union on Thursday.
Police are looking for Justin Brady, 23, of Manchester, N.H., who they say demanded money from a teller at the credit union around 1:30 p.m. Thursday before fleeing on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect told the teller he was armed but did not display a weapon.
Brady is wanted on a charge of Class B robbery, according to a Sanford Police Department press release.
After the robbery, an eyewitness described a vehicle seen speeding away from the scene, according to Detective Sgt. Matthew Jones. Police tracked down the vehicle later that day in Manchester, N.H., and had it impounded. Investigators traced the vehicle back to Brady and were able to speak with him by phone on Thursday evening, according to Jones.
Brady “became despondent and abruptly ended the phone call,” Jones said.
Police believe Brady is hiding somewhere in the Manchester, N.H., area, and local law enforcement agencies are looking for him, according to Jones.
Anyone with information regarding the robbery or Brady’s whereabouts is asked to call Manchester, N.H., police at 603-792-0219 or Sanford police at 207-324-9170, ext. 262.
