Wallingford traffic stop leads to armed robbery arrest


WALLINGFORD — A local man faces armed robbery charges after police pulled him over for traffic violations.

Jason Piascik, 30, of 16 Danny’s Way, was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree robbery and sixth-degree larceny.

Lt. Marc Mikulski, the police spokesman, said Nisa’s Variety Store was robbed at about 6:45 a.m. Sunday. A man, later identified as Piascik, entered the store armed with a knife, took cash from the register and fled the scene, Mikulski said. Piascik made no attempt to hide his face and the incident was recorded on the store’s camera system, Mikulski said. Officers were able to identify the suspect quickly, Mikulski said.

On Wednesday morning, an officer pulled Piascik over for traffic violations, Mikulski said. Piascik was charged with operating an unregistered vehicle and driving without insurance. Once at the police station, officers questioned him and he was then charged with the robbery, Mikulski said.

Piascik was held in lieu of $100,000 bail and will be arraigned in Meriden Superior Court today.
