The Dover Police Department arrested Brian Bowers (34) after a burglary that occurred on Tuesday morning on College Road.  At approximately 4:11 a.m., officers responded to the EZ Check Food Mart for a burglary alarm.  Officers learned that Boers made entry to the business by breaking a window at the entrance and then stole an undiscloseed amount of cash, cigarettes, and a video monitor.  Bowers was wearing tan pants, a blue shirt, and a red covering around his head/face.  Approximately 2 hours after the burglary, officers observed Bowers wearing the same clothing and stopped him.  Bowers had fresh wounds consistent with the broken glass at the EZ Check Burglary.

It was also determined that Bowers was the suspect in the Happy 13 Liquors burglary that occurred earlier in the morning.

Bowers will be charged with the following offenses, once he is done with treatment at a nearby hospital:
-Burglary 3rd Degree (2x)
