A 34-year-old man was arrested after police said he was responsible for a robbery at a gas station/convenience store at a rest area in Orange on Thanksgiving morning. 

James T. Walsh, of Stratford, was charged with sixth-degree larceny and third-degree robbery on Thursday. 

The arrest of Walsh comes after a robbery at the Alltown gas station/convenience store on Merritt Parkway around 3:15 a.m. on Nov. 24. 

Police said a man, who was later identified as Walsh, came into the store and demanded money from the cash register. Walsh took an undisclosed amount of cash before leaving and fleeing the area. 

Troopers searched the area, but were unable to locate Walsh on Thanksgiving. 

Walsh turned himself into state police early Thursday morning. He is being held on a $250,000 bond.
