A James City County man has been charged with burglary and larceny after police say he stole hundreds of dollars from a Williamsburg cupcake company.
Connor Alexander Jacobs, 25, was charged with burglary, petit larceny and grand larceny, according to filings in the Williamsburg-James City County General District Court.
On April 26, officers with the Williamsburg Police Department were called to Extraordinary Cupcakes on Richmond Road for a burglary, filings said.
The officers watched security camera footage that showed a man breaking into the business after hours and stealing more than $200, according to the court documents.
On May 3, Williamsburg police were called back to the business as more than $500 was stolen during regular business hours, the filings said.
A man took the money out of a money bag in a cabinet when no one was looking, according to the court documents.
Managers at the store told police the man who stole the money in the second incident was the very same man who broke into the business the first time, the filings said.
Williamsburg police officers arrested Jacobs the following day at 4:19 a.m., according to arrest warrants filed in court.
Jacobs has no criminal history in Williamsburg or James City County, according to online court records.
If convicted, Jacobs faces as much as 41 years in jail and $7,500 in fines, according to Virginia Code.
