EAST MADISON — A Waterville man remained behind bars Wednesday at the Somerset County Jail on a charge that he robbed the Bingham branch of Camden National Bank last week.

Paul Robinson, 40, made his initial appearance Tuesday in Somerset County Superior Court on a single count of robbery, a Class B felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Bail was set at $50,000 worth of property or $10,000 cash, according to Acting District Attorney Alan Kelley. A jail intake worker said Robinson had not made bail by Wednesday afternoon.

Robinson is accused of taking an undisclosed amount of cash from the bank Aug. 30 while wearing a surgical mask, sunglasses and a hooded sweatshirt.

The robber did not show a weapon to the two employees inside the bank, said Detective Lt. Carl Gottardi, of Somerset County Sheriff’s Department.

No one was hurt in the robbery.

Robinson was arrested in Waterville about 5 p.m. Friday. Gottardi said in a news release that a search warrant was executed in Robinson’s vehicle, which led to the discovery of more evidence connecting him to the crime.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 3 in Superior Court.
