(Dearborn County, Ind.) - A Louisville man is accused of breaking into two Dearborn County businesses. 

A burglary investigation began on November 12 after an unidentified man broke into Wang's Hot Chicken on Broadway Street in Aurora. Police say the break-in happened around 5:06 a.m. on November 9. 

Surveillance video showed the man breaking a window to enter the building. He then walked through the building multiple times and eventually grabbed a piece of cheesecake from a refrigerator. The man went back for seconds before exiting the building. 

A news release was sent out on November 12 asking the public to help identify the man. 

Ripley County Sheriff's deputies recognized the man as a person they had arrested on November 10. His name, Michael A. Dutton. 

Deputies took Dutton into custody outside a Milan business after learning he had escaped from a halfway house in Louisville in early November and hopped a train to Indiana. Police say Dutton's clothing was a match to the clothing worn by the man who broke into Wang's Hot Chicken. 

While in route to Ripley County Jail, deputies received a call from Lawrenceburg Police regarding a burglary at a thrift shop in Lawrenceburg. It was determined through security video that Dutton was responsible for the break-in. 

Dutton allegedly admitted to both burglaries. 

He is charged with two counts of Burglary (Level 5 Felony), two counts of Theft (Class A misdemeanor) and two counts of Criminal Mischief (Class B misdemeanor).
