MONTPELIER –– A man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a Montpelier gas station.
The Montpelier Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Mobil gas station on Berlin Street around 8:31 p.m. on Thursday, October 12, according to Police Chief Eric W. Nordenson.
The lone suspect, identified as 29-year-old Korey E. Dalley of Barre City, reportedly displayed a firearm and demanded money and cigarettes from the store clerk, who complied with the request.

The following day, a cooperating individual identified Dalley as the suspect. A “be on the lookout” was issued and Dalley was located by Barre City Police around 7:31 p.m. on Sunday, October 15.
He was taken into custody and transferred to the Montpelier Police Department.
