Suspect in the Citibank heist in Cos Cob being held in VA.

The man suspected of robbing about $1,000 last month from the Citibank branch in Cos Cob has been identified and are seeking an arrest warrant for him.

Police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray told Greenwich Patch, "We have positively identified a suspect and are obtaining a warrant. He's actually been located in Virginia."

Kevin Bolden, 46, and his 35-year-old girlfriend Moneek Grant, both of New Haven, were arrested by the Nelson County (VA) Sheriff's Department on March 30, after being stopped for speeding in a school zone in Arrington, VA., according to the Nelson County Sheriff's Department and reports in the Nelson County Times and Nelsoncountylife.com. Arrington is about midway between Charlottesville and Roanoke, east of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

In a statement, Nelson County Sheriff W. David Brooks said, "Deputy Rick Smutz was patrolling the Tye River school zone and observed a silver Volvo speeding. A traffic stop was made. The driver told Deputy Smutz they were going to Lynchburg and then gave several false identities. After further investigation, it was discovered the driver was wanted in Connecticut for (robbery)."

The 1998 silver Volvo station wagon the pair was driving was reportedly stolen in Connecticut.

The pair is named in an arrest warrant obtained by Stamford Police in connection with the March 19 robbery of the Citizens' Bank on Atlantic Street, and the March 8 robbery of a Woodbridge bank. When arrested in Arrington, . Stamford Police have said the pair also is suspected of robbing a People's Bank earlier in March.

Sheriffs charged Bolden with speeding, driving suspended, possession of stolen property, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana and falsifying information to law enforcement. Grant was charged with possession of stolen property, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana and falsifying information to law enforcement.

The Citibank branch at 453 E. Putnam Ave. was robbed by a man who demanded money from a teller just before 4:30 p.m. March 22 and escaped with about $1,000, Gray said. Police have said they have interviewed bank employees and customers and reviewed surveillance camera photos and videos from the area. Gray said that police will not release any of those images.

Gray said he would not comment on whether any of the stolen property recovered in the arrest was any of the money stolen from Citibank. He also would not comment on whether Greenwich Police will seek an arrest warrant for Grant.

Contrary to information released by the sheriff's department, Bolden has not been charged yet with the Cos Cob robbery, according to Gray.

Bolden is being held without bond, and Grant is being held in on $2,500 bond, according to Brooks' statement. Both are at the Charlottesville-Albemarle Joint Security Complex, Brooks said in the statement.
