Fall River Police have arrested a man in connection with three armed robberies over the past three days. 

Marc P. Berube, 38-years-old, was arrested and charged with three counts of Armed Robbery and Resisting Arrest after police located Berube in an apartment at 47 Mason St.

Berube is alleged to have robbed Almeida's Floral Design on October 5th, when he brandished a knife and demanded an undisclosed amount of money. He allegedly struck again at S&K Varity Sunday morning. Police were able to identify a getaway vehicle that belonged to Berube.

Monday afternoon police responded to Tina's Sheer Madness Mini Mart with regard to an armed robbery. The suspect entered, brandished a syringe and was given an undisclosed amount of money.

 Officers were able to view surveillance video and recognize Berube. Police then searched the area and spoke with witnesses to determine Berubes location, where he was taken in to custody. A search warrant was executed at the Mason St. apartment where further evidence of the crimes was located.
