A Fairfield County man with a lengthy rap sheet has been charged in connection to robberies at Subway and several bank branches in Connecticut.

Alvin Robertson, of Bridgeport, has been charged with three counts of bank robbery and two counts of interference with commerce by robbery, U.S. Attorney John Durham announced this week. Robertson has pleaded not guilty to the charges in New Haven federal court.

According to the indictment, Robertson allegedly robbed a Subway store on Ethan Allen Highway on May 20 in Ridgefield, and then a second Subway store on Monroe Turnpike in Monroe on July 22. Robertson then allegedly targeted a People’s United Bank branch on Aug. 29 on Monroe Turnpike; a branch on Straits Turnpike on Sept. 21 in Watertown; and a branch on Sept. 25 on Farmington Avenue in Berlin.

According to arrest records, Robertson has a lengthy criminal history including bank robberies in the 1990s.

Robertson, 55, has been detained since he was arrested on similar state charges on Sept. 27. He is scheduled to appear in court at a later date, when he will face up to 20 years in prison on each charge if he is convicted.
