Greenwich Chase bank robbery suspect David Byers arrested in San Diego
San Diego police arrested a California man accused of robbing a Greenwich Chase bank twice within 24 hours and also a nearby Citgo gas station.
David Byers, 34, allegedly struck the East Putnam Avenue Chase branch twice last week.
Connecticut police last saw him on Friday in Old Greenwich. He fled down Interstate 95, prompting a chase in which police say he abandoned his car and escaped by running across three lanes of traffic.
Despite help from a police helicopter and bloodhounds, authorities did not find him. They determined he fled into Pennsylvania and sought help from the FBI and eventually the San Diego County Sheriff's office.
Police say they arrested him early Wednesday morning without incident. The Greenwich Police Department sent a request for his extradition back to Connecticut.
He's facing several robbery and larceny charges, and police departments in other jurisdictions are expected to file more charges.
No one was injured in any of the robberies.
