Vermont police have accused a 29-year-old man of three armed robberies in Chittenden County in which the suspect used a long-barreled handgun. Jason A. Peet is accused of robbing the Simons Store in South Burlington and the Champlain Farms and Maplefields stores in Colchester on Nov. 25. Authorities say Peet pulled the trigger on the handgun multiple times in the Champlain Farms at the intersection of Route 2a and Route 7 in Colchester, but the weapon did not fire. Police say Peet, who is currently jailed in another matter, is to be arraigned on Tuesday on charges of attempted murder, assault and robbery, and attempted assault and robbery.
