‘Armed and dangerous’ twin brothers suspected of bank robbery arrested in New York

CANTERBURY, Conn. — Twin brothers wanted in connection with a September bank robbery in Connecticut have been arrested in New York.

Connecticut State Police announced on Twitter that Vince Rollins and Vance Coffin were arrested in New York on Tuesday and are awaiting extradition. The details of the apprehension remain unclear.

The two 50-year old Norwich residents were wanted for a bank robbery in Canterbury on Sept. 23. They had last been seen driving in a black SUV in the southeastern part of the state.

State police issued an announcement Monday that included pictures of the two men. They said the brothers were “considered armed and dangerous” and advised anyone spotting them not to confront them but to call police instead.

It couldn’t be immediately determined if the brothers had a lawyer.
