Bedford bank robbery suspect arrested
BEDFORD - The suspect in a hold-up at a Bank of America branch last week was arrested Saturday on Interstate 293 in Manchester by a state trooper who spotted the car that had been described as the getaway car in the hold-up.
Kevin Geary, 28, of Hudson, was arrested after Trooper William Burke spotted the 1999 green Dodge Neon traveling northbound on Interstate 93 in Manchester. The car had been reported stolen. Burke pulled the car over on I-293 north near Brown Avenue and made the arrest without incident, police said.
Geary had been sought as the suspect in the bank robbery last Monday afternoon since soon after the hold-up. Bedford police said information from other police departments and the public had been used to identify Geary as the suspect and warrant was issued for his arrest. Geary was also charged on an outstanding warrant from Hudson charging him with receiving stolen property.
Police said at the time of the robbery that a suspect wearing a black hoodie, cargo pants and a baseball cap passed a note to a teller and took off with what was termed a 'significant' amount of money.
Geary was ordered held on $10,000 bail pending arraignment in Manchester on Monday.
