TRUMBULL - A convicted drug dealer is being held on bond after being accused of forcing a woman to rob a Trumbull bank in November.

Police say Carlo Broadnax threatened to kill 19-year-old Amy Miranti's family in Ansonia unless she robbed a bank.

Miranti did end up robbing the People's Bank on Madison Avenue, according to investigators.

Police say Miranti told them that she was forced to rob the bank to pay for crack cocaine.

Investigators say that Broadnax denies threatening the woman's family, but has admitted to driving her to the bank and a gas station that Miranti is also accused of robbing.
