Manchester man indicted on 6 counts of armed robbery
MANCHESTER - A city man has been indicted on six counts of armed robbery after he allegedly brandished a firearm at five local businesses, demanding money and cigarettes.
Police say that on Nov. 8, Antonio Grullon, 42, of 141 Beech St., entered two 7-Eleven convenience stores on Queen City Avenue and Webster Street, as well as Super 8 Hotel on Brown Avenue, and Uncle Bob's Market on Kelley Street. Grullon held a firearm in his hand or displayed the gun in his waistband at each location, according to court paperwork.
Police caught up with Grullon on Dec. 20, after a convenience store clerk who was allegedly victimized by the man at TN Gas on Bridge Street Nov. 13 sounded a silent alarm when he saw him. Grullon had heroin and cocaine on him at the time of his arrest.
If convicted of all six charges, Grullon could face between 45 and 90 years in prison and a $24,000 fine.
