The great caper it was not.
A Connecticut man faces a slew of charges after police say he armed robbed a convenience store — for $3.
Milford police responded to a robbery with a knife at Cumberland Farms sore around 4:30 a.m. July 1 for the reported robbery. Police said a white male walked into the store and went directly to the front counter, where he allegedly pointed a knife at an employee and demanded money.
The employee reportedly had $3 sitting on top of the register from a previous sale which he immediately handed to the suspect.
Milford Police Detectives conducted an investigation and arrested Newman without incident around 3 p.m. He was charged with first-degree robbery and sixth-degree larceny.
He was held on $5,000 bail, or $4,997 more than he allegedly made away with, police said.
