The police have arrested a 38-year-old man from Vught who is suspected of multiple burglaries at catering establishments in Utrecht. The suspect was identified on the basis of secured camera images and DNA material.
The burglaries took place in the period between 17 and 29 June at catering establishments on Biltstraat and FC Donderstraat. Money was stolen during the burglaries. The last burglary also contained blood from the suspected suspect.
The suspect also tried to enter a restaurant on the Adriaen van Ostadelaan, but the man was unable to break the lock. That attempt was captured by a security camera. The police also had useful camera images during the burglary on Bilstraat, so that the suspect could be recognized.
The man was arrested Saturday after he was caught in the theft of a bicycle on the Weerdsingel OZ. The investigation in the area led to his arrest on the Nachtegaalstraat. In addition to the burglaries, the man is also suspected of healing a moped.
