A 36-year-old Trenton man has been arrested this morning for allegedly robbing a Trenton bank on Dec. 16, police said.
Trenton police arrested Dustin F. Pedersen for the robbery at the Fifth Third Bank on West State Street. They received information Friday from the community in reference to Pedersen’s possible involvement in the robbery, police said.
Police issued a search warrant and uncovered “items” that allegedly connected Pedersen to the robbery, said Lt. David Rosenfelder. He did not say what items were found.
