WATERVILLE — A Vassalboro woman was arrested Friday in connection with the robbery of a Waterville store two days earlier, police said.

Casey Glidden, 42, was arrested on a Class A charge of robbery after a multi-day investigation into the incident Wednesday night at the Big Apple store on Elm Street, Waterville police Maj. Jason Longley said in a news release.

Longley said Glidden’s car was pulled over in a traffic stop by police on Friday along First Rangeway in Waterville. Glidden was unable to pay the $2,500 cash bail and was taken to Kennebec County jail in Augusta without incident, he said.

“Crimes like these put every member of our community at risk, making a swift conclusion like this the best-case scenario,” Longley said.

Glidden allegedly fled the scene on foot shortly after taking an undisclosed amount of money from the store, according to police. An emergency dispatch issued shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday indicated that the robber was armed with a knife, but Longley said Friday he couldn’t comment on that initial report.

“As this is still an active investigation, we are not releasing those details at this time,” Longley said.

At the scene Wednesday night, Maine State Police and Waterville police could be seen searching the area outside of the Big Apple store at 33 Elm St. with a police dog. The store was closed and traffic flowed outside, though officers on scene there told a reporter to leave the area.
