Using video surveillance Middletown Police arrested the man who they say burglarized three local businesses last weekend.
Bryan Roberts, 31, of Newark was charged in the Dec. 17 burglaries of Super Cuts, Tequila’s and Goodwill, all which happened in a two-hour period that morning.
Police responded to an alarm at Tequila’s restaurant on E. Main Street at around 6:50 a.m. where they found the glass door shattered. The cash register had been pried open, but no money was inside, said Middletown Police Chief Henry Tobin.
Minutes later, another alarm call came in for the Goodwill on N. Broad Street where the glass door was also smashed in.
The safe had been removed from the office, but Tobin said that police arrived on scene before it could be removed from the store.
During the investigation, a late reported burglary came in from the Super Cuts on E. Main Street.
Police said the rear door of the business had been pried open.
Using video surveillance, police were able to determine the same suspect had committed all three crimes.
They were able to identify Roberts and arrested him Dec. 20.
He was charged and committed to the Howard Young Correctional Facility in lieu of a $14,350 secured bond.
