Bank robbery suspects caught minutes after heist

TOWN OF POUGHKEEPSIE – Three people are in custody with two being charged in connection with a bank robbery in the Town of Poughkeepsie Thursday afternoon.

A woman entered the Riverside Bank branch at 2064 New Hackensack Road at around 3:14 p.m., handed the teller a written note demanding money and fled with an unknown amount of cash. A description of the woman and her car were distributed to police agencies and 15 minutes later, a town police officer located the car. Together with a state trooper, they stopped the car on Old Manchester Road just off Route 55 in the Town of Poughkeepsie. Three people were detained – two men and a woman.

As a result of the stop, they were identified as being involved in the robbery and the proceeds were found in the car.

Town and State Police and the Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office continue to investigate.

Town Police arrested two of the suspects for the January 28 robbery of the TEG Federal Credit Union branch at 11 Marist Drive as well as the recent robbery on Thursday. State Police will be filing additional robbery charges concerning the bank robbery at the First Niagara Bank branch in Pleasant Valley on February 12.

Those charged with the bank robberies are Autumn Conahan, 28, and Keith Surico, 29, both of 67 Old Manchester Road, Lot 38, in Poughkeepsie. They were each charged with two counts of felony robbery.

Kevin Malfetano, 21, of 22 Robin Hill Drive in LaGrange was charged with felony criminal sale of a controlled substance.

The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office also assisted in the investigation.
