STAMFORD - Stamford police have arrested one of the men believed to be responsible for a string a robberies throughout the city.

Police charged Kevin Sauveur, 18, with the robbery of the For Your Convenience grocery store in April. Investigators say Sauveur may also be linked to a burglary at a People's Bank branch on Shippan Avenue, a Radio Shack and a Shell station. Officials say they used a small, silver handgun to connect the suspect to the crimes.

"These robberies have completely stopped," Stamford Police Captain Richard Conklin said. "So we're on the right track."
