Three men have been arrested in connection with Tuesday night convenience store burglaries in Weld, New Vineyard and Jay, state police said Thursday.

D’Kota Rowe, 20, of East Dixfield, and Einer Bonilla, 21, and Duane Bailey, 27, both from Nebraska, were arrested Wednesday night at Rowe’s home in East Dixfield, according to a state police news release. The trio are charged in connection with the New Vineyard burglary at Our Village Market, and charges are pending in connection with the others.

Police said Wednesday that the glass front doors of the stores were smashed in overnight Tuesday and alcohol, cigarettes and other tobacco products were stolen from the stores.

The suspects were taken to the Franklin County Jail.

Troopers also seized some of the alcohol and tobacco products that had been taken from the three stores that were robbed, police said in the release.

Bailey and Bonilla were living with Rowe to work for his mother’s concession stand, which operates at local fairs, the release said.

Troopers have worked with deputies from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and the Jay and Wilton police departments.
