A Middle Island man has been charged in four robberies that took place in Coram and North Patchogue between Sept. 28 and Sunday, Suffolk County police said.

Police said Reginald Warner, 23, was charged with two counts of second-degree robbery, two counts of first-degree robbery and petty larceny. Police said Warner's spree started in Coram on Sept. 29, when he displayed a knife and stole cash from the W & H 112 Laundry at 3669B Rte. 112.

The next day, police said, Warner robbed the USA Gasoline station at 234 Medford Ave. in North Patchogue. Police said he told the clerk he had a weapon and handed the clerk a note demanding cash, then fled with the money.

Last Thursday, police said Warner robbed the Little Mexico restaurant at 2 Middle Country Rd. in Coram by indicating he had a weapon and stealing cash.

Finally, on Sunday, police said Warner passed a note demanding cash to the clerk at the Mobil gas station at 1889 Rte. 112 in Coram and fled with cash.

Warner was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Central Islip, police said. Arraignment information for Warner was not immediately available.
