CARRIE MILLER PHOTO |  Brian Edwards was led into Southold Town Justice Court Friday morning after allegedly attempting to rob a Greenport bank Thursday.

A man wearing a multi-colored hat with fake dreadlocks robbed a Greenport bank on Halloween, and was later found by a K-9 unit and arrested on a felony robbery charge, according to Southold Police.

Cops said 45-year-old Brian B. Edwards robbed the Capital One on Main Street shortly after 4 p.m., and after police arrived on scene, they were able to get a description from witnesses of the suspect.

A K-9 officer responded to the scene, police said, and was able to pick up a track, leading police from the bank to a Second Street home, where they said they found Edwards as well as the clothing described by witnesses, and the contents of the robbery.

Edwards was arrested by police on a felony third-degree robbery charge, as well as second-degree criminal trespassing, a misdemeanor. He was held by police overnight and was arraigned Friday morning at Southold Town Justice Court. He was remanded without bail and is due back in court Nov. 8.

Mr. Edwards was arrested in March for stealing food and beer from a Greenport Village business, according to a previous report. Police then determined he was wanted on an active parole warrant.
