    COLCHESTER — Police have made an arrest in three Chittenden County armed robberies in which the suspect reportedly used a long-barreled handgun.

    Police said Jason A. Peet, 29, of Hinesburg is accused of robbing the Simons Store in South Burlington, and the Champlain Farms and Maplefields stores in Colchester on Nov. 25.

    Peet pulled the trigger on the handgun multiple times in the Champlain Farms at the intersection of Route 2A and Route 7 in Colchester, police said, but the weapon did not fire.

    Police said Peet, who is currently jailed in another case, is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on charges of attempted murder, assault and robbery, and attempted assault and robbery.
