Pawcatuck man formally charged with robbing bank


WESTERLY — The man charged with robbing Washington Trust Bank of thousands of dollars has formally been charged by Westerly police.

Norman C. Renaldi, 41, of 73 Pawcatuck Ave., third floor, Pawcatuck, was formally charged Thursday with second-degree robbery, and on a pair of bench warrants issued by a judge from 4th Division District Court in Wakefield.

Renaldi was charged with the Tuesday, Aug. 27 robbery of the bank branch located in the McQuade’s Marketplace at 106 Main St. Renaldi, who was believed to have left the state after the robbery, was taken into custody by Stonington police days after the robbery when he was spotted in downtown Pawcatuck, according to police.

Westerly Police Chief Edward W. St. Clair said because of pending charges in Connecticut, he was held there until those charges were heard.

He waived extradition to Rhode Island for an appearance in court on felony charge of second-degree robbery.

Police said Renaldi entered the market, handed a note to the teller which stated, “Give me all your money and no one will get hurt.”

The teller complied with the request, police said, and no weapon was displayed or mentioned. Police were able to identify Renaldi from security video

Police recovered $3,900 that Renaldi allegedly stole during the robbery.
