The owners of the bakery put out a plea on social media earlier this month asking the public for help in identifying the man they said broke into their shop multiple times over two weeks.

The bakery said that on Nov. 29, the suspect smashed a window to the door and then stole the cash register.

On Dec. 5, the same suspect was captured on camera breaking into the shop and swiping the cash register again.

“Twice in 1 week is exhausting and I’m running out of doors!” the shop said in a Facebook post sharing surveillance images from inside.

On Dec. 14, the shop was burglarized again. The same suspect entered the shop – this time with all the lights on and a bread baker in the kitchen – but nothing was taken.

He was held on a $100,000 bond and appeared in court on Monday.
