Kevin Fitzpatrick, 32, was arraignd Thursday on charges of robbery and
larceny for a Sept. 28, 2005, robbery. He was held on unrelated charges in
New York at the time of his arrest.

robbery and spent a great deal of time on her computer. They had met on
the Internet and had never met in person when he asked to stay for several
days, borrowing her car the day of the robbery and returning with a lot of
cash, claiming he won it at the Mohegan Sun casino, police said.

teller a note demanding money. A week later, a tip led police to the friend,

Police said when the friend checked the log of her computer, she noticed a

"Most times when citizens get involved, relaying honest and accurate
information about what they see, it's a benefit to the investigation," police
Capt. Timothy Menard said.
