DICKINSON - A 54-year-old Dickinson man was arrested around 4 p.m. on Wednesday in conjunction with the burglary of East End Auto and Truck Parts in Dickinson.
The Dickinson Police Department Criminal Investigation Unit Investigator Joe Cianni said Bruce Dutchuk was arrested following the issuing of a burglary warrant for felony burglary and theft in relation to the same.
Kelsey’s Kitchen, Stockman’s West and East End Auto and Truck Parts were all broken into late Sunday night or early Monday morning. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken from each location.
“Right now, the warrant was issued in relation to East End Auto specifically, so the other two burglaries are under investigation,” Cianni said. “He (Dutchuk) is currently housed at the Southwest Multi County Correction Center.”
While no one has been arrested in conjunction with the burglaries of the other two businesses, the three incidents may have been connected.
“He (Dutchuk) is being looked at as a suspect in those (burglaries) as well,” Cianni said.
Many items in East End Auto were damaged during the burglary, including a computer screen and a wall clock. Kelsey’s Kitchen and Stockman’s West were left in a similar condition.
“There were things strewn about,” Cianni said. “As far as East End Auto was concerned, there was criminal mischief which was done inside as well, and there was a certain degree of that at the other two locations as well but nothing significant.”
Although Cianni would not comment on exactly how someone gained entry to the businesses, he said there was forced entry to all three businesses.
