A man faces burglary charges for allegedly breaking in to two businesses earlier this summer in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood, according to police.

Paul Caligiuri, 52, no address given, is charged with burglary and theft in two separate cases, court records show.

The first incident happened June 3 at Industry Public House on Butler Street, according to Public Safety spokeswoman Alicia George.

The restaurant manager arrived at work shortly before 10 a.m. and found the area around the cash register ransacked and the drawers missing from the register, George said. Surveillance footage showed a man later identified as Caligiuri forcing his way into the restaurant, taking money from the tip jar and making off with the cash drawers.

Police said the cash drawers were empty.

The second incident happened July 28 at the Gallery on 43rd Street, an art gallery. Information regarding that incident was not immediately available.

Caligiuri was taken to the Allegheny County Jail where he remains, unable to post bail.
