BETHLEHEM--An Amsterdam man is accused of helping a bank robbery suspect evade capture.

Bethlehem police charged Anthony S. Zumbolo, 40, with second-degree hindering prosecution, a class E felony.

Police said Zumbolo provided information to Victor A. Shear that he was being sought by police. Shear is the suspect in an Aug. 21 robbery at a Trustco Bank branch in Slingerlands.

Officers said the information provided by Zumbolo helped Shear avoid capture by Bethlehem and New York State Police on Aug. 22.

Zumbolo was arraigned in Bethlehem Town Court and sent to the Albany County Jail without bail. He is due back in court at 11 a.m. Thursday.

The Bethlehem Police Department is urging anyone with information on the whereabouts of Shear to contact detectives at 439-9973.
