NEWINGTON -- A Meriden man arrested last week has been accused of holding up a drug store on the Berlin Turnpike.

Andre Green, 28, displayed a gun when he robbed the Walgreens at 2920 Berlin Turnpike on April 28, Newington police said Wednesday.

No injuries were reported.

In addition to the holdup in Newington -- for which Green faces one count of first-degree robbery with a firearm threat -- he has also been charged in robberies in Southington, Plainville and three other towns around the state between March and May. According to court documents, he admitted to his involvement in all of these robberies after he was arrested by Meriden police in May.

Green is being held on $200,000 bond in the Newington robbery alone, in addition to bonds in the other cases he is facing. His cases that are being heard in New Britain Superior Court, which include those stemming from the Newington, Plainville and Southington incidents, have been transferred to the courtroom that handles Part A matters -- the most serious kind of crimes.
