    A 42-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the robbery of a Bristol gas station this evening.

    Kevin Chamberlain is accused of stealing from the Gulf Mart at 180 Riverside Avenue in Bristol just after 6:30 p.m. today. Police said Chamberlain allegedly reached inside his jacket, told the clerk he had a gun and demanded money.

    The suspect took cash and fled on foot. Chamberlain was arrested shortly thereafter and charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree larceny, possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia.

    He was also served an outstanding warrant for violation of probation in Simsbury, police said.

    Police said officers searched Chamberlain and found money that was apparently taken from the convenience store.

    Chamberlain was held on a total of $100,972 and is due in court tomorrow.

    It’s the second robbery of the Gulf Mart in two months.
