A 30-year-old Wallingford man has been charged in connection with an armed robbery in town after police pulled him over for driving an unregistered car, according to the Wallingford Police Department.
Jason R. Piascik is accused of displaying a knife and stealing cash from the register of Nisa’s Variety store at 824 East Center Street early Monday morning. Police said no one was hurt during the robbery.
According to police, “the robber made no attempt to disguise his appearance and was captured on the business’ surveillance camera system.”
Authorities identified Piascik as the suspect and charged him in the robbery while at the police station after he was arrested on motor vehicle charges, police said. He was pulled over Wednesday morning and charged with operating an unregistered car and driving without insurance.
Piascik was additionally charged with first-degree robbery and sixth-degree larceny.
He’s being held on a $100,000 bond and is due in court tomorrow.
