Police in Milford have charged two Bridgeport men in connection with the Tuesday morning robbery of a local Wells Fargo branch.
Deveral Webley, 32, whose last known address was on Kossuth Street and Nathaniel Campbell, 27, whose last known address was on Lennox Avenue, both in Bridgeport, were charged with attempted first-degree robbery and conspiracy and interfering with police.
Webley was also charged with criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Wells Fargo Bank employees told police that two men entered the bank at 10:48 a.m. Tuesday, one of them showing a handgun and the other jumping over the teller area and opening up cash drawers.
The drawers were locked and the men fled in a grey Infiniti SUV without getting any money, Lt. Vaughan Dumas said..
Milford officers went to the bank and a detective in an unmarked vehicle saw the grey SUV going south on Interstate 95 into Stratford.
The detective followed the SUV as it drove onto side streets in Stratford and onto Columbus Avenue, where there was marked Stratford police unit.
At that point the passenger of the SUV fled. The driver also attempted to get away from police, but was captured in the 600 block of Columbus Avenue. Stratford police and a K-9 unit helped track down the passenger in a house in the 300 block of Columbus Avenue.
Police identified the driver of the SUV as Webley and the passenger as Campbell.
