NASHUA – Police across New England are on the lookout for Zachary Provost, a tall, thin man with ties to Connecticut, in connection with the robbery of the TD Bank branch on Gusabel Avenue, which is adjacent to the Nashua Mall on Broad Street.

Images of Provost, 32, were captured by bank surveillance cameras and distributed by police to media and other law enforcement agencies as part of their investigation into the incident.

Police said that officers were called to the bank, 10 Gusabel Ave., about 1:30 Monday afternoon for a report that a robbery had taken place.

Officers and detectives were told by bank employees that a man entered the bank, passed a note to a teller and demanded money, police said.

Police didn’t say whether the suspect, later identified as Provost, made reference to a weapon or if one was brandished during the incident.

They did say that nobody was injured.

Upon leaving the bank, police said, Provost drove off in a red pickup truck with Connecticut registration plates 730ZYN, but the plate number didn’t match the truck.

Once police developed Provost as the likely suspect, they passed the information on to other departments, which in turn issued “be on the lookout” bulletins via radio.

Police also learned that Provost is wanted by Connecticut authorities “in connection with crimes that occurred in that state within the past week,” they said.

They described Provost as 6-feet, 3-inches tall, 175 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. He also has a goatee, and has multiple tattoos that include two stars on his neck, one on the right side and the other on the left.

He was last seen wearing jeans, boots, a CAT baseball cap and an American Eagle hooded sweatshirt.

Police described the truck, which is medium-red in color, as a single-cab model with a rack guard on the back.

Police ask that anyone with any information on Provost’s whereabouts, or on his pickup truck, are encouraged to contact either their local police department or Nashua police at 594-3500 or on its Crime Line at 589-1665. Police warn anyone who comes in contact with him to use caution, not approach him, but promptly call police.
