A Marlborough man arrested in a pharmacy robbery last September has pleaded guilty in that case, and admitted to four similar robberies from September through November.
Prosecutors say 52-year-old David Haney showed the pharmacist a firearm in his waistband and demanded oxycodone pills in a holdup at the CVS on Buckland Avenue in South Windsor last September 25. They say he made off with more than 2,000 pills.
He pleaded guilty to that holdup before federal Judge Stefan Underhill, and, in making the plea, admitted committing similar robberies, starting with the Walgreens on Deming Street in East Hartford September 15, and also at at the Walgreens on Main Street in Meriden October 3, at the CVS on Main Street in East Hartford October 11, and at the Walgreens on Talcottville Road in Vernon November 9.
Police released security camera images of their suspect in a number of the holdups.
He could be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison at his sentencing in May.
