SOUTHINGTON - A Waterbury man charged on Tuesday in a Southington robbery is believed to have robbed as many as five banks in three different states.

Zachary Provost, 32, was charged with first-degree robbery, criminal impersonation and sixth-degree larceny in connection with a Southington bank robbery on Dec. 1 at TD Bank, located at 121 Main St.

Police said Provost went into the bank and tried to make a withdrawal using someone else’s identity. When the transaction was declined, he allegedly gave the teller a note that demanded cash and claimed he had a weapon on him, according to police.

Provost then left the bank with about $350, police said. No one was injured, and no weapon was displayed during the holdup.

Police later identified Provost as the suspect. According to Southington police, he is also a suspect in robberies that occurred in Putnam and Avon, and Nashua , N.H., and Shrewsbury, Mass.

Provost, who is being held on $250,000 bond, was arraigned Tuesday in Bristol Superior Court. His case was transferred to court in New Britain, where the most serious matters in the area are prosecuted. He is scheduled to appear there on March 13.
