Police in Portland and Falmouth say they have charged a Portland man with a string of five robberies.

Joseph Evers, 41, was arrested in Falmouth on Monday, police said.

The first four incidents occurred in Portland over three days ending Dec. 6 at the CVS Pharmacy on Forest Avenue, the Walgreens on Marginal Way, the Domino’s Pizza on Forest Avenue and the TD Bank on outer Congress Street.

The robbery of a Key Bank on Route 1 in Falmouth occurred  a few days later, on Dec. 10.

Evers, a Portland resident, is being held in the Cumberland County Jail on $30,000 cash bail. He is expected to make a first appearance in court Wednesday.
