BRISTOL — Police have arrested a man wanted in connection with a string of seven restaurant burglaries this spring.

Bristol police said 39-year-old Gregory Rogers was identified as a suspect in two of the burglaries, at Corner Pizza and Rodd’s Restaurant, after incidents were reported at several businesses along the Route 6 corridor.

The break-ins all occurred between March and May, police said.

After authorities apprehended Rogers, he confessed to burglarizing five other businesses during that time period, police said. Police said the burglaries occurred at Taste of China and Dunphy's Ice Cream Store on May 5; Sakura Kitchen on May 16; and Grinders Keepers and Dunkin’ Donuts on May 18.

Rogers is facing charges of third-degree burglary in most of those incidents, along with larceny and criminal mischief charges.

He was held on $250,000 bond, police said.
