A follow-up on a story we’ve been covering for some time, as a Weathersfield, Vermont man accused of robbing several financial institutions at gunpoint has turned himself in to authorities.
According to Vermont State Police, 31-year-old Matthew Martin turned himself in to authorities shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday morning after having been named “Fugitive of the Week” by the U.S. Marshall’s Office early last week. As part of the denomination, a $5,000 reward was offered for information leading to Martin’s arrest.
Martin is most recently accused of robbing the Heritage Credit Union in Ludlow last Monday, and is also accused of holding up banks in Charlestown and Loudon, New Hampshire, as well as in Springfield, Vermont.
Nobody was injured during any of the robberies Martin is suspected of committing, and authorities are not releasing how much money the managed to steal.
Martin surrendered to police without incident, and is scheduled to be arraigned later this week.
