MERIDEN — A city man faces charges after police said he robbed a gas station at knifepoint in November.
Carlos Lugo, 27, of 403 Center St., was charged by warrant on Monday with second-degree robbery and sixth-degree larceny.
On Nov. 11, 2018 around 3:30 a.m., a suspect threatened a clerk at Shell, 934 Broad St., with a knife. When the clerk ran outside and called police, the suspect fled.
Police obtained Lugo’s fingerprints from a counter he touched, according to his arrest warrant. Officers also identified him from security video.
In a November interview with police, Lugo said he was the person in the security video but didn’t remember being in the store because he was under the influence of medication and alcohol, the warrant said.
Lugo was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Monday. Bond was set at $25,000 and he is due back in court on Feb. 14.
