BARRE, Vt. -

Police say an East Barre man may have more up his sleeve than a few armed robberies.

Last month, Patrick Blodgett and a woman were arrested in connection with five Rutland convenience store stickups.

A police affidavit says that Blodgett also forged signatures on blank checks last May and April. Police say the 26-year-old tried to cash those checks for almost $9,000.

The Times-Argus reports Blodgett has had convictions for retail theft and resisting arrest in 2011.
