Blotter: Man accused of stealing more than $1,000 worth of e-cigarettes

A 19-year-old man was arrested Tuesday in connection with an early-morning burglary at Bombay Vapor shop in the 2300 block of South Interstate 35E. 

The suspect, Denham Brock, was taken to Denton City Jail on a charge of burglary of a building. He reportedly stole $1,052 worth of electronic cigarettes from the business, Denton police spokesman Bryan Cose said. 

Denton police were dispatched to the business about 12:40 a.m. after a burglar alarm went off inside, according to a police report. The front door and glass display case in the building were shattered, Cose said. 

Officers contacted Brock at a nearby Burger King, where they saw him with a bag full of e-cigarettes earlier in the night, Cose said.
