Concord police nab suspected bank robber

Last modified: 5/21/2015 12:21:59 AM
A Concord man has been arrested and charged with robbing the Bank of New Hampshire branch on North Main Street on Monday.

Scott Lojko, 39, was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon at his home on Stone Street, the police said in a statement. Officers later recovered an undisclosed amount of cash from the home that they say is consistent with the amount reported missing from the bank.

Lojko was charged with felony unarmed robbery and arraigned yesterday in Concord’s district court. He refused bail Tuesday.

According to the police, a man matching Lojko’s description approached a bank teller about 12:30 p.m. and handed her a note demanding cash. After receiving a small sum, he fled westward on foot.

The police said a postal worker making deliveries in the area saw Lojko and made “key observations” about his car, which investigators later used to identify Lojko.

“On behalf of the citizens of Concord, we offer our sincere thanks to this individual,” the police said.
