DUMMERSTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man considered a suspect in robberies in Brattleboro has been charged with robbing a gas station in Dummerston.

Police arrested 49-year-old Kevin Lynch at his home in Brattleboro on Monday in connection with the robbery, which happened in January.

In that incident, a man entered the Exit 4 Sunoco in Dummerston and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk at first refused, but was threatened with harm. No weapon was shown. The man fled with about $100.

Police in both towns worked together to get a search warrant for Lynch’s home.

Lynch was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
