BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A Rutland man could face up to 20 years in prison if he’s convicted of a string of robberies.

According to court documents, Daniel Webster, 37, of Rutland, was arraigned for committing two robberies.

The first robbery occurred on July 24, 2021, at the Mobil Gas Station in Rutland. Police say he approached the counter, sprayed a liquid at the cashier and took money from the register. Police say they found a knife in the parking lot.

The second robbery on July 28, 2021, was at the Mac’s Convenience Store in Fair Haven. Webster was a former employee and knew where the safe was and stole the bag of money and cash from the register.

Webster pleaded not guilty.

Webster is also accused in a separate federal case of distributing cocaine base on two occasions in March 2021. He previously entered not guilty pleas to those charges.

Webster is currently detained pending trial.
