Racine police say a 46-year-old man is facing felony burglary charges after he broke into bar and a convenience store last month.

Gary Jones, of Racine, was charged Tuesday in Racine County Circuit Court with two felony counts of burglary. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison and/or up to $50,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint, surveillance video depicted Jones at about 12:30 a.m. Sept. 26 throwing a brick through an entrance window of Greg’s Pub, 525 Wisconsin Avenue. He stole an unknown amount of change, and officers noted a unique tattoo on his right forearm.

Police say Jones was caught on video again, this time on Sept. 30 breaking into Main Stop Foods, 1711 Main Street, and stealing an unknown quantity of cigarettes. Still photos were given to patrol officers, and Jones was identified as the suspect in question.

Jones remains in the Racine County Jail on a $5,000 cash bond. He will next be in court Oct. 20 for his preliminary hearing.
