Authorities say they’ve made several arrests in a multi-jurisdictional investigation of a series of Radio Shack robberies around the state.  Full details won’t be released until next week, but police say they’ve tied together nine robberies at Radio Shack, AT&T and Verizon stores,  and two attempted robberies.

Police say their investigation has stretched over five months,  and included police from eight Connecticut towns, as well as the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Robberies were reported in New Britain, New Haven,  Wallingford, Clinton, East Haven, Hamden, Orange, and Trumbull.
