A man accused of two armed robberies in Milford has been arrested, police say.
Tasmine Shannonhouse, 25, of Hamden, is facing robbery, larceny and possession of a firearm charges in connection to the two incidents.
The first incident happened on Oct. 8 when police say Shannonhouse robbed a person at gunpoint at an ATM drive-thru at People's United Bank on South Broad Street.
Police say on Oct. 10, Shannonhouse also robbed an employee at gunpoint inside of the Taste of Thai restaurant on South Broad Street.     
Police say they arrested Shannonhouse after reviewing surveillance video, and later recovered a BB gun believed to be used during the robberies.
Shannonhouse also had an outstanding warrant for failing to pay a marijuana infraction in Norwalk back in 2014.
He was held on a $200,250 bond for both cases and the warrant, and is scheduled to appear in Milford court on Oct. 22.
