Dukes County Sheriff Robert Ogden told The Times Saturday afternoon that someone related to Thursday morning Rockland Trust bank robbery is in custody. He said a press release from the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office was expected to be released soon. Tara Miltimore, a spokeswoman for the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office, later sent a brief statement to The Times:

“There was an arrest of an individual in connection with the Rockland Trust bank robbery. The investigation is ongoing and active.”

On Friday night, a the sedan was impounded by the police on Beach Road in Vineyard Haven and someone was questioned. It was unclear if the person questioned on Friday was the same person who was arrested on Saturday, or if someone else had been arrested.

In an email to The Times early Saturday afternoon, Tisbury Police Chief Chris Habekost wrote that he could not release further information at this time because “to do so could jeopardize the integrity of a sensitive and active criminal investigation.”

Habekost said he consulted with all Vineyard leaders and they agreed the information should be kept confidential for now.

“Public safety is ensured by all law enforcement officers on this case, as well as regular patrols and our emergency response units,” Habekost wrote. “If anyone feels in immediate danger, please call 911 for emergency response.”
