TEWKSBURY – Police Chief Ryan Columbus reports that the Tewksbury Police Department arrested and charged a Methuen man with unarmed robbery, breaking and entering and additional charges after a series of incidents at a local gas station. 

ARNALDO GONZALEZ, AGE 33, OF METHUEN, was arrested and charged with:

  • Unarmed Robbery
  • Breaking and Entering Motor Vehicle
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Shoplifting

On Sunday, November 26, at approximately 5:45 p.m., Tewksbury Police were called to the Petroil gas station at 365 Main St., for a report of a man refusing to get out of a delivery truck that was not his. 

Officers arrived and made contact with the individual, later identified as GONZALEZ, and determined he had entered the delivery truck while its driver was inside the gas station.

A further on-scene investigation also determined that GONZALEZ stole a couple of items at the gas station by threatening to shoot a clerk with a rifle.  No weapon was used or found on scene. 

GONZALEZ briefly resisted when taken into custody at the scene, but there were no reported injuries. 

GONZALEZ is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Lowell District Court. 

These are allegations. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
