CT Man Latest To Be Arrested In Rockland Trust Robbery

Another person is being charged for the armed bank robbery that happened last year on Martha's Vineyard.

According to the Justice Department, Tevin Porter of Bridgeport, Connecticut was one of the three men who robbed the Rockland Trust Bank in Tisbury on November 17th.

“Today, the FBI arrested the fourth member of a crew that is accused of committing a violent armed bank robbery on Martha’s Vineyard, which terrorized innocent bank tellers and bystanders just trying to go about their daily lives. It’s incredibly fortunate no one was hurt,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Division. “Bank robbery is not an easy payday, it is a federal crime, and FBI Boston’s Violent Crimes Task Force and our law enforcement partners will do everything in our power to ensure perpetrators are brought to justice, like we did in this case.”

A fourth defendant, Romane Clayton of Jamaica, allegedly departed from the Vineyard with Porter on a ferry later that day.
