COLONIE — Police arrested a man who allegedly robbed the Dunkin’ Donuts on Loudon road seven times in the month of March.
According to Lt. Robert Winn, the store was burglarized on March 12 through March 23 by who appeared to be the same person based on surveillance video.
The suspect used a key to enter the store, after closing time, and then a register code to steal a total of $564.25.
A suspect was developed by a list of past employees and surveillance video.
On Tuesday, March 24, patrol officers Javier Martinez and Kyle Keane remained in the store after closing, and the Investigations Division conducted surveillance of the suspect.
Austin Lopez, 22, was followed from his home in Cohoes to the business and at around 8:20 p.m. entered the business with a key and attempted to take money from the register.
The two officers inside the store placed him under arrest without incident.
Lopez, who was fired from Dunkin’ Donuts in February, is charged with eight counts of felony burglary, seven counts of misdemeanor petit larceny and one count of attempted petit larceny, also a misdemeanor.
He was sent to the Albany County jail pending arraignment in Colonie Town Court.
