Police have arrested a man they believe is tied to several armed robberies, including one in St. John's three months ago. 

Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officers, with help from the RCMP, picked up the man, 27, on Tuesday. 

The man, who was being held for a provincial court appearance on Wednesday, is accused of trying to hold up City Superette in downtown St. John's in January. 

Police also say he faces charges in connection with other armed robberies. 

The suspect was arrested without incident, although police did not say where.
