A Wendell man whom police arrested early Saturday morning at the scene of a burglary involving cigarettes was charged the next day with a July break-in that netted an estimated $25,000 worth of smokes from a convenience store.
And, as police compared open cases with the one in which Danny Thomas Goldston had been arrested, they charged him with a breaking into the same Wilco-Hess store on Louisburg Road again on Sept. 3 and taking $6,600 worth of cigarettes.
Goldston, 28, of 264 Wood Green Drive in Wendell, was charged in arrest warrants with three counts of felony breaking and entering and three counts of felony larceny.
The Saturday break-in happened at a business on Westinghouse Boulevard, police said. Records show Goldston’s being arrested there about 3 a.m.
Goldston was held in lieu of $111,200 bail on the burglary charges and traffic charges stemming from a May 11 traffic accident. He had been free on the earlier charges when arrested over the weekend, and that required a magistrate to set a higher bail.
State records show Goldston was convicted in August 2011 of five break-ins in March and two felony larcenies.
