DRACUT -- A 37-year-old Lowell man is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on charges that he robbed the TD Bank at 1255 Bridge St. Tuesday afternoon.

The man, Darryl Valcourt of 60 Leeds St., allegedly handed a note to a bank teller demanding cash and saying he was armed. He was wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses and a gray hooded sweatshirt and did not show a weapon, police said.

Witnesses told police that Valcourt ran down Emerson Avenue when a dye pack exploded, covering his clothing with a red dye. He allegedly discarded the dye pack, a stack of bills and the note he gave a teller, all of which were recovered by police.

Police received anonymous tips from people who viewed a photo of the suspect identifying Valcourt. According to police, he agreed to meet with officers and confirmed he was the one who robbed the bank.

He was taken into custody and charged with armed robbery.
