A Hyde Park man was nabbed for breaking into a Town of Poughkeepsie restaurant and bar where he formerly worked.

Richard M. Martini, 47, of Hyde Park, was charged with burglary, criminal mischief, and petit larceny, after police responded Saturday to Groggers Bar & Grille for a report of a burglary, said Town of Poughkeepsie Police Capt. Kevin Faber.

Police found that someone had broken into the business sometime during the early morning hours of the same say, Faber said. He declined to reveal what was taken.

Within a few hours of the report, responding patrol officers identified and arrested Maritini, a former employee, Faber said.
