The armed gunman in the black ski mask who was chased out of the Clinton liquor store by the owner’s dog has been arrested by the Clinton Police – he and his alleged accomplice.
Two men were arrested Feb. 24 for the attempted robbery last month at Glenwood Wine & Spirits. The arrests came as a result of a joint effort and investigation by the Clinton Police Department, the U.S. Postal Investigators, the New Haven Police Department and the Hamden Police.
Under arrest are Korey Streater, 24, of 263 Shefield Street in New Haven and Earl Telford, 26, of 308 Britania Street, Meriden.
They are charged with criminal attempt to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.
While awaiting their turn at Middletown Superior Court on another alleged robbery, the two were arrested by police for the Jan. 14 attempted robbery at Glenwood Wine & Spirits.
According to police, the arrests came after both men were implicated for allegedly doing the same thing in other towns in Connecticut.
Detective Sgt. Joseph Flynn of the CPD said the two allegedly robbed stores in West Haven, Wallingford and Hamden.
Flynn said that Streater allegedly performed the robberies after his buddy, Telford had “checked out” the premises about an hour before.
This is based on statements and video evidence, said Flynn.
Both men are being held on $100,000 court set bonds. They will be appearing in Middletown Superior Court for many future dates.
