Sarah Ann Cowdrey was arraigned on Monday

Sarah Ann Cowdrey was arraigned on Monday for allegedly robbing two downtown St. Johnsbury restaurants in July. Cowdrey, 32, pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of assault & robbery with a weapon for attempting to take cash from the Domino’s Pizza cash register with a knife at 250 Railroad Street on July 13th, but the Domino’s employees stopped the attempted robbery. Cowdrey also pleaded not guilty on Monday to a misdemeanor charge of petit larceny for allegedly stealing over $300 from the cash register at “Subway” located at 18 Federal Street on July 12th. Cowdrey is already jailed due to a parole violation, so the state asked for conditions of release, which Judge Michael Kainen approved. Cowdrey faces a possible sentence on both charges of one to 16 years in prison and a $1,000 fine.
