4531

Dover Police have arrested a man in connection with two burglaries.

According to police, the suspect used a brick to smash a window at Caribbean Market on West Loockerman Street early Wednesday morning, stole about $1,5000 worth of property and fled the scene. That same suspect, according to police, 34-year-old Brian Bower, headed to PNC Bank at The Plaza and used a sledge hammer and crowbar to break into an ATM. He got no cash, but damage to the machine is estimated at $20,000. Police say Bower went back to the market and stole more items.


Video surveillance was used to identify Bower as a suspect in both crimes.


Police say Bower was also arrested and charged in a burglary case Monday of this week.
