Second arrest made in Shelton bank robbery

Posted: Updated:

The Shelton Police Department has arrested a second person in connection with an armed robbery at a gas station in the city last month.

Officers were called to the Shell gas station on Bridgeport Avenue around 10 p.m. on Nov. 6 after a man demanded money from a store clerk.

The suspect pointed a handgun at the clerk and then fled the gas station on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, police said.

The clerk was not injured, police said. No one else was in the store at the time of the robbery.

On Thursday, Patricia Mercaldi, 29, of Monroe was arrested at Superior Court in Derby. She was charged with first-degree conspiracy to commit robbery and is expected to be arraigned Thursday.

On Wednesday, Kashawn Brown, 23, was arrested at Superior Court in Derby. He was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and fifth-degree larceny and is being held on a $100,000 bond.

The robbery is under investigation by the Shelton Police Department and more arrests could be made in the case. Anyone with any information is asked to call 203-924-1544.
