Armed bank robbery in Town of Newburgh

TOWN OF NEWBURGH – A man armed with what appeared to be a handgun held up the Chase Bank branch at 5020 Route 9W in the Town of Newburgh next to the I-84 exit ramp shortly after noon on Tuesday.

The suspect had his head and face covered when he went into the bank and demanded money. A teller turned over an undetermined amount of cash.

The bandit fled north on Route 9W in a red Toyota Camry that police said may have been the same vehicle that was reported stolen on Third Street near Route 9W in the City of Newburgh about an hour before the robbery.

Town of Newburgh Police are being assisted in the investigation by State Police and the FBI.

Anyone with information is asked to call Newburgh Town Police Detective Division at 845-564-1100.
