Red Bank police closed the book on a quartet of burglary cases over the past two weeks, including a double break-in at a park concession stand.

Five suspects were arrested in total, for burglaries that committed over the last two weeks, police said. All suspects were locals.

According to police spokesman aptain Darren McConnell:

•  Two teens were arrested in connection with two break-ins at the Riverside Gardens Park concession stand. A 14-year-old from Red Bank and a 15-year-old from Fair Haven were later released to their parents after police arrested them for busting into the stand and stealing drinks and snacks, he said. The case was forwarded to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.

• Two men from Tinton Falls were arrested for their alleged roles in a burglary at a Wallace Street residence on August 14, McConnell said.

Robert Manookian, 22, and Dwayne Davis, 21, were charged with theft and burglary by borough police after being tracked down by Tinton Falls officers the day of the crime. The two were taken to Monmouth County Correctional Institute in Freehold in lieu of $25,000 bail.

• Oscar Tellez-Tlalpichito, 27, of Red Bank, is accused of breaking into a vehicle near Riverview Medical Center on East Front Street and stealing an amplifier, clothing and a purse — all of which were recovered by police at his residence, McConnell said.

Tellez-Tlalpichito was charged with burglary, theft, criminal mischief and hindering his own apprehension. He was taken to the county jail in lieu of $51,000 bail.
