Newark Police arrested a man Tuesday and charged him with sneaking into Caffe Gelato and stealing items from an office in the Main Street restaurant.
The incident occurred on June 22 at about 2:30 a.m. The restaurant was closed, but Tymere Hall-Pennewell was able to enter the building, said Lt. Andrew Rubin, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department.
Rubin said that employees were still there cleaning up after closing, and Hall-Pennewell entered undetected through an unlocked door.
Rubin said Hall-Pennewell rummaged through an office and stole money and other undisclosed property before fleeing.
Through surveillance footage and witness interviews, police identified the suspect as Hall-Pennewell, 18, of Wilmington, and issued a warrant for his arrest.
Hall-Pennewell was arrested Tuesday at his residence, Rubin said. He was charged with third-degree burglary and theft over $1,500. He appeared before Justice of the Peace Court #2 and was released on $3,110 unsecured bail.
