Brunswick police arrested a man late Thursday in connection with the robbery of a TD Bank branch a day earlier.

A male suspect entered the bank at 10 Tibbetts Drive on Wednesday, demanded cash from a teller and then fled the scene. He did not have a weapon and no one was hurt. Police released a physical description as well as surveillance photos and asked for the public’s help.

The next day, police received a tip from someone who identified the man in the photos as William Hartley, 33, according to a police statement Friday. Officers obtained a warrant to search the man’s home on Independence Drive on Thursday, but he wasn’t there.

Hartley was located Thursday night at the Best Western Plus motel on Gurnet Road, where he had rented a room. He was arrested on one count of Class B burglary and taken to Cumberland County Jail.

Bail was set at $10,000.
