Police on Thursday morning recovered the vehicle used the day before by two suspects in an armed robbery of People’s Bank downtown, officials say. It was recovered in New Canaan, according to police. Authorities have described the vehicle as a red two-door Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
The pair made off with nearly $9,000 in cash, according to police.

An employee of the Main Street bank phoned 9-1-1 to report the robbery at about 3:58 p.m., jus after it happened, according to Police Lt. Jason Ferraro, public information officer of the New Canaan Police Department.
“The New Canaan Police Investigative Section along with multiple local and Federal agencies are investigating this robbery,” Ferraro said in a press release. “ A reward is being offered for information which leads to the arrest of the suspects through the Connecticut Bankers Reward Association.”

A handgun was displayed during the robbery, Ferraro said.
