Marlborough Man Pleads 'Guilty' to November Robbery of Vernon Walgreens

52-year-old David Haney also confessed to committing four other robberies in 2013.

A Marlborough man plead 'guilty' Wednesday in five armed robberies of CVS and Walgreens stores in Vernon, Glastonbury, East Hartford, Meriden and South Windsor.

David Haney, 52, was arrested in November for robbing the CVS on Buckland Road in South Windsor on Sept. 25. According to court records, Haney approached the pharmacy counter, showed the pharmacist a gun tucked into his waistband and demanded oxycodone.

Haney left the store with more than 2,000 pills of varying strengths.

Haney pleaded ‘guilty’ Wednesday to one count of interference with commerce by robbery for the incident in South Windsor, as well as similar robberies at a Walgreens on Hebron Avenue in Glastonbury on Sept. 15, a Walgreens on Main Street in Meriden on Oct. 3, a CVS on Main Street in East Hartford on Oct. 11 and a Walgreens on Talcottville Road in Vernon on Nov. 9.

Haney’s case is scheduled for sentencing on May 14, at which time he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.
