PASADENA, Md. (WMAR) — A former worker is accused of breaking into a kabob restaurant overnight Tuesday in Pasadena.

Anne Arundel County officers were called to Tandoori Kabob on Mountain Road at around 1:30 a.m.

The store owner told police that he noticed the front window of his business had been shattered. He then reported seeing a white Ford pickup leaving from the back of the restaurant, with a former employee sitting in the passenger seat.

After the owner gave them the license plate number, police tracked the truck down and arrested two men, charging them with burglary.

They were identified as 58-year-old Joseph Richard Twomey of Pasadena and Julio Enrique Velazquez-Torres, 34, of Glen Burnie. It's unclear if anything was stolen or which of the suspects used to work at Tandoori.
