WORCESTER – Early Wednesday morning, Worcester police officers were dispatched to the Worcester Pizza Factory restaurant at 75 Maywood St. for a reported break-in in progress.
According to the Worcester Police Department [WPD], a caller reported two males wearing dark hooded sweatshirts breaking in the back door of the Worcester Pizza Factory
When the WPD officers arrived, they found the back door of the restaurant broken enough for room for suspects to enter. WPD officers saw one suspect look out from underneath the door. After being given verbal commands to exit with his hands showing, the suspect ran back inside the restaurant.
Officers then surrounded the Pizza Factory to ensure the suspects couldn’t escape. After several attempts to command the suspects to exit the building, the WPD officers forced entry inside to search it.
Inside the Worcester Pizza Factory, officers found and arrested Ruben Morales, 25-years-old, and Juan Garcia, 37-years-old, both of Worcester.
Morales and Garcia were charged with two counts of vandalism, breaking and entering at nighttime for a felony, and resisting arrest. They will be arraigned on Wednesday in Worcester District Court.
