Accused Bank Robber Facing More Charges

The Wellsville man arrested Friday for robbing the Community Bank in Alfred is now charged for robbing the same bank in January, and for calling in a bomb threat to the Alfred-Almond School District.

51-year-old Scott Wade is charged with robbery, grand larceny, fleeing from police, falsely reporting an incident and numerous vehicle and traffic violations.

Wade was arrested Friday after witnesses to the robbery chased him and pointed police in his direction as he tried to get away. He did take police on a brief high speed chase that ended when he crashed his SUV.

Wade is in Allegany County Jail on $100,000 bail. Police believe he may also be connected to bank robberies in the Binghamton area.
