CLAREMONT — A 32-year-old Claremont man was arrested Thursday for allegedly committing a string of robberies around the city in late August and mid-September.

Nathan Lane was charged with four counts of robbery as well as attempted robbery, theft and attempted theft. He was brought to Sullivan County Jail, where he is being held pending his arraignment in Sullivan Superior Court on Friday, according to a news release from the Claremont Police department.

Police say Lane committed four robberies, starting with a CVS store on Wall Street on Aug. 27, and again on Aug. 29, the release said. The first robbery was committed while police were responding to an unrelated standoff at a house on North and Chellis streets, Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase confirmed.

On Sept. 15, police say, Lane robbed the Cumberland Farms on Pleasant Street and on the following day, he allegedly robbed the Family Dollar store, also on Pleasant Street, the release said.

Chase said police don’t believe Lane used a weapon in the robberies, but that he did pass the clerks notes demanding money from each location.

Police identified Lane using fingerprint evidence, Chase said. Lane, who was charged with a second-degree assault involving a baseball bat on Sept. 26, was out on bail when he was arrested for the robberies, according to Chase. Further information on the assault was not available Thursday.
