COLCHESTER, Vt. (WCAX) - Police used a K-9, surveillance, and tracking to arrest a man they say robbed two local stores and hurt a clerk.

Colchester Police say it all started on Sunday when a man and woman robbed the Champlain Farms in Colcester. The man reportedly had a black metal pipe-tool on him.

Then Wednesday night, officers were called to the Food Mart in Winooski for a robbery. Police say the man had a pipe and reportedly assaulted the clerk before running off.

Officers set up a perimeter, used a K-9 to track and watched surveillance video. That led to the arrest of Eric Champagne, 29.

Police searched his room at a nearby motel and say they found evidence tying him to both robberies.
