Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say quick work by officers led to the arrest early Monday of a man who allegedly broke into a South End restaurant.
Police say David Tabron Jr., 55, was charged with breaking and entering, larceny, and possession of stolen property. Those charges are in connection with the alleged burglary of Nikko Restaurant, in the 300 block of Arlington Avenue.
Officers responded about 3:30 a.m. to a burglary alarm at the restaurant and arrived within a few minutes, authorities say. Police say they spotted a man in an alley behind the restaurant, holding several bottles of liquor. Officers also discovered the glass door of the restaurant had been broken.
Police say the liquor being held by the man had come from Nikko’s. After an investigation, police charged the suspect, identified as Tabron, with the break-in.
It was the third time this year that Tabron has been arrested. He was arrested six times in 2012.
Police ask that anyone with additional information in the case or about Tabron contact Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600.
