State Police Detectives Make Arrest in Canterbury Armed Robbery

On May 30, 2010 at approximately 11:55 pm, Troopers from Troop D responded to an armed robbery at the Cumberland Farms convenience store, 188 Westminster Rd. in Canterbury.  Troopers learned that a masked, white male, suspect entered the store armed with a pistol.  The suspect demanded money from the clerk then fled the area on foot.
