The number one story of 2012, as voted by our readers, was the recent robbery at Fidelity and the arrest that came the following day. A single vote seperated this year's top two stories.
According to officials, a male subject entered Fidelity on November 20, 2012 demanding cash while holding a clerk at gunpoint. The subject then fled around the building. The exact direction was initially unknown. New Haven officers along with deputies from Franklin County were able to recover evidence while searching the area.
Assistant Police Chief Dan Terry said, “Our officers immediately began searching the area where the subject was reported to have fled too. Franklin County Deputies assisted in searching the area for any possible evidence. At the same time we placed Citizens Bank on lockdown along with both the Elementary and High Schools.”
