Worcester Man Arrested After Breaking Into Former Takara Building

Saturday, August 05, 2017

 

A Worcester man was arrested in the area of Millbury Street after trying to break into the business formally known as “Takara.”

Jimmy Kang, 41, charged B&E Nighttime for a Felony, Defacement of Property, Possession of a Firearm without an FID card, Possession of Ammunition without an FID card, Aggravated Burglary, Improper Storage of a Firearm, Possession of a Firearm while Committing a Felony, Unlawfully Carrying a Loaded Firearm, and Possession of an Open Container of Alcohol.

The Incident

On Friday August 4, at about 1:40 a.m., Worcester police were sent to the area of 10 Millbury St for a report of a man trying to kick the door in at the business formerly known as “Takara.” Upon arrival, officers saw that both the side and back door of 10 Millbury St had fresh wood damage to the frame and around the locking mechanisms. The callers flagged down the officers and said that the suspect was in a black Mercedes on Harding St. The officer saw the suspect in the car, and stopped the Mercedes on Harding St.

The man, later identified as Jimmy Kang, 41, of 12 Flagg St, tried to get out of the car as the officer approached. The officer told him to show his hands and stay in the car. The officer noticed an open bottle of Heineken beer in the driver’s side door, and placed  Kang in handcuffs. A search incident to arrest revealed two unspent .45 caliber ammunition cartridges in Kang’s front pocket. Officers checked the immediate area for a firearm, and located a handgun in a fenced-in area near the damaged doorway of 10 Millbury St. 

Kang does not have a license to carry firearms. 

Kang was placed under arrest.
