It has not been a particularly good spring for one Lowell man. He was recently fired and now he faces the possibility of going to jail.

Steven M. Corbin, 28, 19 3rd Ave. (APT 2F), was arrested this week and charged with a "smash and grab" burglary of a Tewksbury gas station.

The incident began on June 14, 2014, at around 7:10 am, when Tewksbury Police Officers responded to Center Mobile, 1040 Main St.. The manager of the business  reported that someone had broken into the business after they had closed the night before and had stolen $150 in cash.

According to the police report, "an investigation ensued and it was determined that the perpetrator was likely a former employee who had access to certain codes and keys."

Tewksbury detectives recovered video surveillance showing two suspects breaking into the gas station at approximately 1:32 a.m. According to the report, employees from the Center Mobile positively identify one of the suspects as Corbin, an employee who had recently been fired.

Tewksbury Detectives and Lowell Police Officers were sent to Corbin’s residence in Lowell and he was taken into custody without incident.

Corbin was arraigned Monday in Lowell District Court, charged with Breaking and Entering in the Nighttime to Commit a Felony, Larceny from a Building and Malicious or Wanton Destruction of Property.

According to Tewksbury Police, Corbin's alleged accomplice has not been identified but the investigation is ongoing.

Tewksbury Police urge any citizens who suspect criminal activity to call the Dispatch Center at 978-851-7373.  If you wish to remain anonymous call the Tip Line at 978-851-0175 or send an email to tewks_detectives@tewksbury-ma.gov
