An arrest has been made in connection with the March 4 robbery of the TD Bank in Lexington Center, police said.
Charles S. Knights, 41, of 14B Straweberry Hill Road, Acton, was arrested at that address on Monday, March 11, and is expected to be prosecuted federally, according to Lt. Det. Michael McLean of the Lexington Police Department.
The arrest came a week to the day from the crime, in which Knights allegedly walked into the TD Bank on Mass Ave in Lexington Center, passed a note to a bank teller and made off with an undisclosed amount of money. No weapon was shown during the crime, according to reports.
In the days that followed, investigators collected video surveillance and circulated still shots of the suspect -- later identified as Knights -- to area departments and the media. Knights was identified as the suspect and, as it turns out, he is also the suspect in a Boston bank robbery, McLean said.
The March 11 arrest, which occured without incident, came as a result of collaboration among the Lexington Police Department, FBI, U.S. Marshals Office, the State Police Bank Robbery Task Force and the Acton Police Department, according to McLean.
"It all starts with the patrol officers at the scene, and it all went positive from there," McLean said. "This was a good example of numerous agencies working well together, sharing information and coming together to make a resolution quickly."
Following the arrest, Acton Police executed a courtesy booking and Knights was then taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals.
