The Wesselman's grocery store on Evansville's west side has been burglarized several times over the last few weeks. Police have now arrested one man they believe to be involved.

20-year-old David Egan is charged with burglary, theft, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Evansville Police say he admitted to taking beer from a storage area behind the Wesselman's on Sonntag last month. Investigators say someone broke in at least four times.

Egan allegedly told them he acted as a lookout for police on one occasion, while a group of teenagers broke in.
