Fall River Man Pleads Guilty to Two 2015 Robberies
A Fall River man will spend the next three to five years in state prison after pleading guilty to two convenience store robberies that took place last summer.
Adam Peckham, 21, pleaded guilty to two counts of unarmed robbery at Fall River Superior Court Wednesday afternoon, according to a release from Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn's Office.
On July 13, 2015 at around 11:30 pm, Fall River Police responded to the 7-11 on North Main Street for a report of a robbery. The store clerk and another individual inside the store positively identified Peckham as the suspect.
Later that same night, at around 1 am on July 14, Fall River Police responded to a robbery call at the Tedeschi's on East Main Street. Peckham was again identified as the suspect.
Following a rapid investigation by police, Peckham was located and arrested without incident.
After his release, Peckham will be subject to two years of probation that will include abstinence from drugs and alcohol. He will also be ordered to stay away from the two convenience stores during the probationary period.
