A suspect has been charged in connection with the March 2 armed robbery of Dunkin Donuts on W. Main Street in Washingtonville.

Christopher Tucker was arraigned on April 7 at about 5 p.m. He was charged with one count of robbery in the second degree and conspiracy in the fourth degree. Tucker was sent to Orange County Jail on $30,000 bail, or $90,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear back in court on April 13 at 5 p.m.

Few details were known about Tucker as of press time Thursday. Police didn’t disclose Tucker’s age, but he’s believed to be in his late 20s.

The March robbery sent Washingtonville into a frenzy, leading to the closure of its village center and a lockout at all five of its schools.

The man who robbed the coffee and doughnut shop wore an Iron Man mask to conceal his identity, and demanded money from both the main and drive-through cash registers. He carried a small handgun, according to reports.

The man stole about $1,100 before fleeing through the parking lot and entering a black, four-door sedan driven by a female. The vehicle headed north on Route 208 toward Hamptonburgh, police said.

It was subsequently reported to the O.C. Post that Tucker was an accomplice.
