| BOSTON (AP) The FBI today announced the arrest of Wesley Theodore Lott, 30, of Framingham, an unemployed photographer, for yesterday's $2509 robbery of the Winter street branch of the Newton-Waltham Bank and Trust Co.
FBI agents and Waltham police recovered approximately $2400 of the amount taken, Leo L. Laughlin, special agent in charge of the Boston office of the FBI, said.
The robbery marked the third time in nine months that branches of the same bank have been held up and looted of $18,000.
In yesterday's holdup, a lone gunman wearing a trench coat, sun glasses and false beard entered the branch in early afternoon at a time when Richard O'Neil of Waltham, and apprentice teller, was alone.
Manager Robert Burns, returning to the branch as the man ran out, said he saw what appeared to be a .45 caliber automatic in the man's hand.
Waltham Police Chief William F. Carmody said $880 was found in Lott's possession in two envelopes addressed to the Guaranty Trust Co. of Waltham, where the man had an account.
Another $1553 was found in Natick wrapped in a paper bag hidden behind a tree on Steen street.
Carmody said Waltham police and FBI agents worked side by side in the investigating the robbery. An automobile registration jotted down by a bank employee led to Lott. Carmody said the photographer used his brother's car.
Lott has two children.
