Lebanon man charged in 3 robberies arrested in NY

A Lebanon man wanted for three robberies and suspected of a third was arrested in New York after he attempted to hold up a Bronx pizza shop, according to police.

Benis Miguel Duverge-Casanova, 32, was charged January 22 under the alias Jose Solis, according to Lebanon police, who said confirmation of his true identity took several days.

Duverge-Casanova will be returned to Lebanon, likely by the end of the month, to face charges in a robbery January 14 at the Family Dollar store at 306 Cumberland Street and robberies January 16 at the Wells Fargo bank at 801 Cumberland Street and the Turkey Hill store at 716 East Lehman Street, police said.

Police have said they also consider him a suspect in a robbery January 15 at the Domino's Pizza at 1303 Cumberland Street.

Duverge-Casanova appeared to be armed with a handgun during the Wells
Fargo and Domino's robberies and pulled a knife on a clerk during the
incident at the Turkey Hill, but kept his hand in his coat pocket and
did not display a weapon at the Family Dollar, police said.

No one was injured during any of the crimes.
