NORWICH – Police who arrested an Oxford man for robbing the South New Berlin Quickway at gunpoint also uncovered a stash of weapons from the suspect.
Joel L. Lewis was arrested Jan. 20 after police began searching for a suspect in the crime two and a half weeks earlier.
A masked Lewis allegedly entered the South New Berlin convenience store and demanded money from a cashier at around 7:30 p.m. Jan. 7.
The only employee at the time of the robbery, the clerk said he was stocking shelves when he saw a man in winter clothes come in. That particular night, temperatures in the area were well below freezing and the clerk said it didn’t seem that unusual.
