A New Hampshire man charged with robbing the Vineyard Haven Rockland Trust branch in an armed heist will be extradited after he was arrested during a car stop in Connecticut this weekend.

An Edgartown man who police said drove the getaway car in last week's armed robbery of a Rockland Trust bank branch was arraigned Monday morning in Edgartown District Court.

One person has been arrested in connection with the armed robbery of the Rockland Trust bank in Vineyard Haven that took place Thursday morning and resulted in an intensive search and investigation.

Three armed robbers who held up the Vineyard Haven branch of Rockland Trust remained at large Friday, as officials circulated a picture of a masked suspect caught on camera during the Thursday morning heist.


Rockland Trust has named Richard Kane as the first vice president and lending center manager for Falmouth and Martha’s Vineyard.


The Edgartown National Bank, the Island’s second oldest bank, will be acquired by the Rockland Trust Company. Due to be completed next spring, the transaction is valued at about $24.5 million.
