    Police in Billerica, Massachusetts have arrested a man they say brandished a large revolver during a robbery.

    Authorities say 60-year-old Billerica resident Michael Girouard was arrested and charged with armed robbery around noon Monday.

    He is accused of robbing Petrolex, a fuel service station on Chelmsford Road, on Sunday around 3:20 a.m.

    He first asked the clerk for cigarettes before pulling out a large framed silver revolver and demanding money, finally fleeing on foot, according to police. 

    Police are investigating if Girouard was involved in similar robberies that took place over the next day in the area.

    Officers responded to the Variety Plus store on Nashua Road around 7 p.m. Sunday for a report of an armed robbery that also involved a man brandishing a large revolver.

    Around 4:40 a.m. Monday, another robbery with a man who had a revolver occurred at the Mobil gas station on the Lowell line in Tewksbury.

    No injuries were reported during any of the robberies.

    It is not clear when Girouard will appear in court or if he has an attorney.
