Arrest made in Bridgeport robberies

Police say they arrested a 20-year-old Bridgeport resident after he robbed a Subway on Wood Avenue last night.

Authorities say an employee called 911 at around 9:30 p.m. and was able to identify Basil Smith, saying, ?his eyes were red, like he was high on drugs.?

Officials believe Smith is connected to as many as nine armed robberies in the last two weeks, including one at a Cumberland Farms on East Main Street Sept. 19.
