WATERVILLE, Maine — A 23-year-old man was arrested Friday afternoon in connection with a pizza shop robbery that occurred last weekend, police said.

Mitchell McQuarrie of Waterville was taken into custody without incident shortly after 1 p.m., Waterville police Chief Joseph Massey said.

McQuarrie is accused of holding up the Little Caesars on Main Street on July 28. He reportedly fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

After surveillance images of the robbery suspect circulated throughout local media, Detective Alan Perkins received a flood of calls from people acknowledging they may know who the suspect was, Massey said.

After working on the case throughout the week, police caught a break Friday when they stopped McQuarrie’s vehicle on Main Street shortly after 1 p.m., Massey said.

McQuarrie was taken into custody, charged with robbery and brought to the Waterville police station, Massey said. McQuarrie’s bail had not yet been set Friday afternoon.

McQuarrie allegedly handed a pizza shop employee a threatening note demanding cash at the time of the robbery. No weapons were displayed.
