Police say a Burlington man with a long rap sheet faces charges of breaking into the Ben & Jerry's store on Church Street.

It happened around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday. Police say Ibrahim Garelnabi, 26, forced his way into the store through the locked front door. They say he bagged up several items including the cash register drawers and a safe before leaving the store on foot. When police got there, they saw Garelnabi and chased him down.

Police say Garelnabi currently has more than 10 active pending criminal cases in Chittenden County. He's due in court Wednesday.
