Wallingford police arrested a West Haven man on multiple charges Monday in connection with a robbery of a Krauszer's convenince store late last year.
Police said Anthony Simons, 44, 353 Center St., came in to the 560 South Main St. store on Dec. 4 and initially asked the clerk to purchase a cigar. When the clerk opened the register to get change for the sale, Simons pulled out a folding knife and brandished it in front of the clerk, police said.
Simons then reached over the counter and grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash from the register. He then fled the store and got into a black car. No one was hurt at the time, police said.
Simons was arrested by Wallingford police on a warrant charging him with first-degree robbery and sixth-degree larceny. He was held on a $150,000 court-set bond and was due in Meriden Superior Court on Jan. 14.
Police said Simons was taken into custody from the state Department of Corrections. Simons was behind held at a prison in New Haven for other related robbery charges, according to the state DOC's website.
