Newburgh bank robbed

NEWBURGH – The Citizens Bank branch at 456 Broadway in Newburgh was robbed by two men late Tuesday morning.

City Police said two men entered the bank and demanded money. Neither displayed a weapon.

The robbers received an undetermined amount of money before fleeing the rear of the bank on foot. Police believe they got into a black vehicle that was parked not far from the bank.

Money that contained a dye pack exploded outside the bank. The bag that contained the dye pack and the money taken were recovered by police. It is unknown if all of the money was recovered.

Shortly after the robbery, police approached a black vehicle parked in the area of Bush Avenue. Officers spotted a handgun inside and three occupants were arrested. Detectives do not believe the vehicle or the men inside were involved in the robbery.

Both bank robbers are described as black men wearing baseball caps, sunglasses and bandannas over their faces.

City Police ask anyone with information about the heist to call them at 845-561-3131.
