ALBION, Mich. — A 35-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after a break-in at Dollar General, 110 S. Eaton St.

According to the Albion Department of Public Safety, Joshua James Buchanan allegedly broke into the store early Wednesday morning.  After the alarm was triggered at about 2:30 a.m., investigators say they discovered the door was pried open.

Buchanan was located by police a few blocks from the store and detained.  Officials later discovered he was caught on surveillance video in the store, according to a release.

Investigators say Buchanan is also responsible for at least two other recent break-ins.  The first happened Feb. 12 at the General Store, 111 S Superior St., and the second happened Feb. 15 at J. Kevin Tidd Funeral Home, 811 Finley Dr., police said.

Buchanan has been formally charged with breaking and entering for the Dollar General incident but more charges are expected.
