A man sought in connection with a convenience store robbery in New Bedford is also a suspect in other robberies.

Detective Captain Steven Vicente says Michael Sietzinger was identified as the suspect in the December 8 robbery of the Stop n Save convenience store at 129 Ashley Blvd.

Sietzinger allegedly walked into the store around 7 a.m. and ordered a stick of gum.

He was then accused of brandishing a firearm when the clerk opened the register, reached into the register, and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Sietzinger was arrested earlier this week in Brewster in connection to a similar robbery in that town.

In addition to the Brewster and New Bedford robberies Brewster police say that Sietzinger is now being investigated by several agencies in connection with more than a dozen armed robberies in the Virginia, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania area.

Brewster Police say two firearms were recovered in his home that reported stolen from a gunshop in McLean, VA.

Vicente says a Detective from New Bedford will be traveling to Brewster to meet with counterparts there and share information.
