FALMOUTH – A suspect accused of committing an armed robbery in Middleborough was captured in Falmouth Tuesday evening. State Police spotted the wanted vehicle on Route 28 and tried to stop it. The driver failed to stop and police were forced to stay back due to reported erratic operation and fears of a potential crash. The suspect vehicle was located by Falmouth Police at the intersection of Palmer Avenue (Route 28) and Jones Road. The suspect was taken into custody without further incident.

From Middleborough Police: Around 5:07 PM, Tuesday, a man wearing all-black clothing entered the Sunoco Mart at 157 Main St. The man reached over the counter and grabbed money. The store clerk said the man might have had a knife.
