New Bedford Police Arrest Suspect In Credit Union Robbery

A city man has been charged with an unarmed robbery Thursday at the New Bedford Credit Union on Purchase Street.   Det. Capt. Steve Vicente says the robber entered the Credit Union just before noon time, and handed the teller a note saying he had a weapon, and demanding cash.  After receiving the money, the robber was seen running on Maxfield Street.  Officers called in a Police canine, and thanks to discarded clothing on the street, the dog followed the scene to County and Smith Streets.

Police then showed neighborhood residents a photo of the suspect, taken from the bank surveillance tape.  They were directed to a 4th floor apartment on County Street, where they found 31 year old Shawn Audette under a blanket, sitting in a recliner.  Capt. Vicente says Audette will be arraigned Friday in district court.
