ALBANY COUNTY, N.Y. -- Bethlehem Police have arrested a man accused of helping the suspect of a bank robbery in Slingerlands.
Police arrested Anthony Zumbolo, 40, on Monday. According to police, Zumbolo tipped off Victor Shear, 45, that police were looking for him.
Shear is accused of robbing the Trustco Bank on New Scotland Road in Slingerlands last Wednesday. His car was found last Friday in Highland Falls.
Police say Shear was able to get away from police because he was warned by Zumbolo.
"Anybody that's providing support to him, first of all, it's criminal and second of all, it's dangerous. We really want to try to reiterate to the public that we need to get Mr. Shear in custody safely and as soon as possible and that's what we're trying to accomplish here today," said Adam Hornick, Detective Sergeant for the Bethlehem Police Department.
Zumbolo has been charged with hindering prosecution. He was arraigned and sent to Albany County Jail.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to Shear's arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stoppers Hot Line at 1-866-313-8477. All callers will remain anonymous.
