Samuel Colby, 39, of Springfield was arrested Friday evening for the January 8, 2022 robbery of the 802 Credit Union in Springfield, the U.S. Attorney for Vermont said.
According to court records, Colby was the suspect in a string of five robberies that occurred in Springfield and Westminster between January 6 and January 14, including the robbery of the 802 Credit Union.
These robberies were reported by victims as involving a firearm or threat of a firearm. A search of Colby’s vehicle on January 14 resulted in the seizure of a BB gun that looks similar to a semi-automatic pistol.
During a search of Colby’s residence on the same date, law enforcement found a scrap of paper that appears to match the paper used for a demand note presented by the suspect at the 802 Credit Union robbery.
