CORNISH, Maine — Maine State Police have arrested a Cornish man in connection with a robbery late Monday night at the Big Apple store in that town.

Scott Stevens, 22, was arrested on a robbery charge at his Sokokis Trail home early Tuesday morning and then taken to York County Jail, where he remained Tuesday evening.

According to investigators, Stevens entered the Big Apple about 10 p.m. Monday night and handed the clerk a note demanding cash, two cartons of cigarettes and some chewing tobacco, which he received before leaving the store on foot, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said in a news release.

McCausland said state troopers said that Stevens resembled the man shown on the store’s surveillance video and went to his home to question him. There, they recovered most of the cash and the stolen tobacco items.

Stevens was taken to the York County Jail .
