    WALLINGFORD — Vermont State Police are looking for a man suspected of robbing a Cumberland Farms store in Wallingford.

    Police said the man was dressed in a dark green poncho, sunglasses and a bandanna as he approached the clerk at about 11:50 p.m. Thursday at the U.S. Route 7 store and demanded money.

    The man did not display a weapon but kept his hand under the poncho, indicating he had one.

    A police dog tracked the suspect behind the store, finding the bandanna and some cash on the railroad tracks.

    Separately, police are looking for a man who forced his way into a Circle K store on Route 12 in Weathersfield early Friday and took several items before fleeing.
