No new leads in Callicoon bank heist

By Fred Stabbert III
CALLICOON – New York State Police are still following leads in the First National of Jeffersonville Bank robbery, which occurred last Wednesday afternoon in Callicoon.
Despite having a partial car description, State Police reported, “Nothing new,” as they look to unravel the second such heist in less than a week in the western Sullivan County river hamlet.
Jeff Bank’s Callicoon Branch manager Sandy Ross, who needed to be airlifted to Westchester County Medical Center following the robbery, is reported to be feeling much better.
More Security
The Bank of America, which was robbed on Friday, October 30, has hired Wackenhut Private Security to help keep the bank safe.
An armed guard from the security firm has been there nearly a week.
“The robbers read the newspapers, too,” the security guard said. “Bank of America is very good to its employees and customers and wants to keep them safe.”
The guard said his firm was recently in Kingston, working for a Key Bank branch which was robbed twice in one month.
The thieves in the Bank of America robbery were arrested just an hour after the robbery thanks to some quick police work, as well as an eyewitness who came forward with a description of the white Taurus the Connecticut robbers used in their getaway.
Safety Seminar
In light of the recent robberies, the Callicoon business community is sponsoring a Workplace and Personal Safety Seminar on Tuesday, November 17 at 5 pm at Café Devine on 33 Lower Main St., Callicoon.
Sullivan County Sheriff’s Dept. Detective Lt. Don Starner will present the seminar. It is open to all merchants, employees and citizens.
