During their investigation, police checked with local parole officers, and one said the man in the surveillance video looked like a client who had been ­released from federal prison on Oct. 25.

Police said they put out an arrest warrant, picked him up in South Boston Thursday night, and brought him back to Quincy.

John L. Haddad, 50, was charged with unarmed robbery, stealing from a depository, placing a person in fear, and larceny over $250. Police said Haddad did not have an address of his own, but gave addresses of ­relatives in Rockland and ­Weymouth.
