ORRINGTON, Conn. (AP) – A man charged with 22 break-ins at Dunkin’ Donuts shops in at least 10 Connecticut communities wasn’t after a cup of coffee or a pastry.

Police say 32-year-old Brett Johnson told investigators he burglarized the coffee shops to support a $300-a-day oxycodone habit.

The Republican-American reported Tuesday that the Manchester man is being held on $251,600 bond on numerous larceny, burglary and mischief charges. Court records did not list an attorney.

The break-ins date to April when a safe containing more than $750 was stolen from a Torrington Dunkin’ Donuts. Johnson and his wife were caught in June at a shop in Granby.

Police say Johnson had done heating and air conditioning work at Dunkin’ Donuts in the past so was familiar with the layout of the stores.___Information from: Republican-American, http://www.rep-am.comCopyright 2017 The Associated Press.
