      Albany police say that have made an arrest in connection to the robbery at Doyal's and D&D Food Mart on June 26.

      Police say they have arrested 55-year-old Milton Larry Watts for both robberies.

      Watts has been charged with two counts each of armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

      Police say Watts was picked up for shoplifting two packs of sausages on July 3. A manager locked the store doors on Watts to attempt to detain him until police arrived.

      Officers say that is when Watts locked himself in a store office and climbed into a ceiling which he later fell through, resulting in injuries.

      Watts was charged with the robberies the next day after being interviewed by detectives.
