    Police in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, say a man suspected of robbing a supermarket last month has been arrested in Las Vegas on a bank robbery charge.

    Police said 35-year-old Gerald Bickford was arrested March 5 following the bank robbery in Boulder City, Nevada, and a pursuit that ended in a crash. Police identified that vehicle as the same one used to flee the Market Basket robbery in Portsmouth on Feb. 2.

    Bickford, formerly of Wells, Maine, is jailed in Nevada and awaits extradition. It could not be verified whether he had an attorney.
