BRISTOL — Bristol police on July 5 arrested two Monkton men and charged them with armed robbery after they allegedly forced their way into a Bristol nursing home and made off with narcotics on July 4.
Police arrested Timothy J. Boardman, 42, and Alec T. Morse, 20.
Authorities allege that the two suspects, armed with tire irons, grabbed an employee as she was leaving the Living Well Care Home on Maple Street at around 10 p.m. and forced her to re-enter the facility.
Once inside, Boardman and Morse allegedly demanded drugs and cash from the home.
