Man charged in four restaurant robberies

Suspect is held on $150,000 bail

A Dorchester man accused of robbing four fast-food restaurants at gunpoint in just 12 days was ordered held on $150,000 cash bail after his arraignment Monday in Dorchester Municipal Court, said Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.

Boston police arrested Richard Calderon-Colon Saturday after fingerprints at the scenes allegedly linked him to the May 13 robbery of a McDonald’s in Dorchester, the May 18 robbery of a Dunkin’ Donuts in Dorchester, the May 21 robbery of a McDonald’s in Roxbury, and the May 25 robbery of a Dunkin’ Donuts in Mattapan, Conley’s office said.

Calderon-Colon was arraigned on the Dorchester and Mattapan robberies Monday. No arraignment date has been set for the Roxbury robbery.

Calderon-Colon allegedly told police that he robbed the restaurants using a BB gun. He stole a total of at least $1,200, although the amount has not been tallied, said Jake Wark, a spokesman for Conley’s office.

Dorchester Municipal Court Judge James Coffey rejected prosecutors’ request for $500,000 cash bail, setting it at $150,000 cash and ordering that Calderon-Colon’s bail be revoked on drug possession charges filed in February, prosecutors said. Calderon-Colon is scheduled to return to Dorchester Court July 10.
