A St. Johnsbury man was arrested Thursday morning in connection with robberies that reportedly occurred the afternoon of Sunday, December 17, at convenience stores in Lyndonville and St. Johnsbury. Thursday morning, state troopers executed a search warrant at the St. Johnsbury home of 42-year-old Anthony Shafer and arrested him on charges of attempted armed robbery and petit larceny. The state has now charged Shafer with felony attempted assault and robbery with a weapon and a misdemeanor charge of petit larceny. The attempted robbery charge arises from an incident at Nick’s Gas N’ Go in Lyndonville (VSP Case No. 23A4009269), and the larceny charge is connected to a theft several hours later at Center Tower in St. Johnsbury (Case No. 23A4009276). Shafer was brought to the Vermont State Police Barracks in St. Johnsbury for processing.
