Late Wednesday afternoon (Jan.18) the Danbury Police Department reported that they were actively seeking information on a man suspected of robbing a bank on North Street. Thanks to help from the residents of Danbury, the suspect of the robbery has been arrested.

According to a press release, 36-year-old, Michael Zemsky of Brewster turned himself into police at around 2:30 this morning (Jan. 19). The DPD says that shortly after high quality surveillance photos (shown below) were released, Detectives used tips from the public to quickly establish Zemsky as the suspect.

As previously reported, in true bank-robber fashion, Zemsky reportedly handed a note to a bank teller, letting her know he had a weapon on his person. While surveillance and reports say that no weapon was seen, Zemsky ran from the scene on foot with a still undisclosed amount of money.

Michael Zemsky has been charged with both robbery and larceny and was held on a $10,000 bond.
