BANGOR – One man is in custody after he allegedly robbed the Penobscot County Federal Credit Union in Bangor Monday morning.
According to a Bangor Police Department spokesperson, around 8 a.m. Joseph Vandam entered the credit union and gave a note to the teller demanding money.
“Responding officers were given a description of the suspect, who had fled the credit union prior to our arrival. They successfully found that suspect walking within the area of the credit union, and they were able to take him into custody,” said Bangor Police Sgt. Wade Betters.
Betters says Vandam left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash but was quickly found by Bangor police officers a short distance from the credit union.
The police sergeant says Vandam was arrested and charged with robbery and violation of conditions of release due to an unrelated arrest.
Betters says no one was hurt during the robbery and Vandam is currently at the Penobscot County Jail.
While the investigation continues, Betters says no further information will be released.
