STRATFORD, Conn. -- A 24-year-old suspect in a bank robbery in Shelton surrendered after an armed standoff with police in Stratford on Thursday morning, according to the Connecticut post.
Police told the Connecticut Post that the U.S. Marshal Violent Crime Fugitive Task Force, along with Shelton and Stratford Police, went to a home on Pleasantview Avenue in Stratford to arrest Bryce Laister. Laister was wanted on charges of violating his probation and failing to appear in court, and is also the suspect in a bank robbery in Shelton, according to the Connecticut Post.
When police went into the house at around 6 a.m. to search for Laister, they found him in an upstairs bedroom with a gun, the Connecticut Post reported. That led to a standoff that lasted more than two hours, during which Laister pointed the gun at both police and himself, according to the Connecticut Post.
Police were eventually able to talk Laister into surrendering, and he gave himself up and was taken into custody, the Connecticut Post reported.
