Weathersfield Man Sought in Robberies

Friday, December 11, 2015
Weathersfield — New Hampshire State Police and the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force are searching for a 31-year-old Weathersfield man suspected of robbing a bank in Charlestown on the day he was supposed to be sentenced to prison in Vermont.

The U.S. Marshals Service in New Hampshire this week listed Matthew Martin as its “fugitive of the week” and said he is wanted on arrest warrants for bank robbery in both states.

Martin is suspected of robbing the Mascoma Savings Bank in Charlestown around 3 p.m. on Dec. 1, New Hampshire State Police said.

That same day, he failed to appear in court in White River Junction to be sentenced in connection with three robberies, including a gas station in Ludlow, Vt., and two banks in Springfield, Vt.

Martin is also the subject of an arrest warrant following the armed robbery of a TD Bank in Loudon, N.H., last Friday, according to New Hampshire State Police Sgt. Shawn 

A police news release said the suspect in that case displayed a firearm and was described as a white male in his mid- to late-20s, and about 5 feet 6 inches in height.
