On May 30, 2013, the Manchester Police Department responded to Citizens Bank at 2035 Brown Avenue for a report of a robbery. Upon arrival, a bank teller indicated that she was working at her station when a Caucasian male, who appeared to be in his mid-30s and approximately 5’5” tall, 140 pounds, wearing a short-sleeved white buttoned-down shirt, gray beret, and eyeglasses, entered the bank and walked over to a table, which contained blank deposit slips while speaking on a cell phone. He wrote on a slip, walked to her station, and handed her a deposit slip that stated, “All unmarked bills. I have a gun give back note. Be calm.” The teller gave Talbot of the currency from her register.
Talbot left the bank in a gray Audi. Following the robbery, law enforcement determined that the 2003 silver Audi A4 was registered to Jonathan Talbot of Bedford, New Hampshire. At 3:50 p.m. on May 30, 2013, approximately one hour after the robbery, law enforcement traveled to Talbot’s residence.
