Aiken Man Presses Luck & Gets Caught at 6th Business

An Aiken burglar pressed his luck Sunday and got caught while breaking into a 6th business, authorities said.

Quinton Taylor, 22, of Aiken, was standing behind the counter at the Breakers Convenience store on University Parkway when Aiken cops saw the window broken and investigated, a press release says.

He was arrested and later linked to six other burglaries along York Street and University Parkway, including:
* Little China restaurant, York Street.
* Nail Art Salon
* Approved Cash Payday Loans
* The Lemonade Stand, University Parkway
* Automotive Service & Machine Shop, York Street.
* Steven’s Monuments

The burglary investigation began with an 5 a.m. alarm at Little China restaurant on York Street, which led officers to look around and find damage and break-in to the other businesses.

“At each of the previous burglaries prior to his arrest; a quantity of money and surveillance equipment had been taken from the business,” said Cpl. Jeremy Hembree said. “Once the subject was arrested officers were able to recover the items which had been taken.”

He is charged with multiple counts of burglary and is being held at the Aiken County Jail.
