AUGUSTA, Maine — A Topsham man has been indicted by the Kennebec County grand jury in connection with the Feb. 28 robbery of a Waterville bank.

David R. Alvarez, 28, was indicted Wednesday on one count each of robbery and theft by unauthorized taking. His indictment was made public Friday.

The theft charge is related to his allegedly taking a jacket during the robbery.

Alvarez reportedly walked into the Bangor Savings Bank on Main Street about 9 a.m. Feb. 28. He handed the teller a threatening note demanding cash and fled with an undisclosed amount of money, which was recovered, Waterville police said last month.

A Waterville police officer dealt with Alvarez shortly before the robbery was reported during a minor traffic accident, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said after Alvarez was captured the day of the robbery.

If convicted, Alvarez faces up to 10 years and a fine of $20,000 on the robbery charge and up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 on the theft charge.
