According to police, a 43-year-old man is facing criminal charges after he tried to break into a Plymouth bank and then robbed a nearby liquor store.

William Flynn is charged with destruction of property, breaking and entering in the nighttime, and larceny.

Flynn allegedly smashed a rear window at Sovereign Bank on Commerce Way around 10:45p.m. Wednesday night.

He didn’t make it inside the bank.

But while police responded to the bank’s burglar alarm, Flynn allegedly broke into Plymouth Liquors in the Village West Shopping Center and stole cases of beer and several packs of cigarettes.

Captain John Rogers says a K-9 found Flynn in the woods not far from the shopping center, where Rogers believes Flynn has been living.
