Raleigh police officers have arrested a man and a woman in connection with a burglary that happened at a Raleigh bar back in March. Police believe the male suspect is responsible for two burglaries and one attempted burglary that were committed after he hid in the ceilings until the business closed.

The female suspect is believed to have been an accomplice in at least one of the cases.

The first attempted burglary happened on March 14 at The Goat Bar, located in the 5000 block of Western Boulevard.

Detectives say at around 1:30 a.m., the woman was seen letting the man into the business through a side door. Both of them then entered the women's restroom. The woman later exited the restroom, but the man was not seen again.

Authorities say an employee at the bar stayed inside the business long after the bar closed. After daybreak, the employee said they heard a noise and a short time later, the suspect ran by them and exited the bar.

He was seen getting into a white four-door vehicle. Nothing was taken during the incident.

Days later on March 20 , the male suspect is believed to have robbed the same bar.

Investigators say the crime was discovered when an employee arrived to prepare the establishment for opening. Stolen items included cash, an iPod, a computer, a safe and two laptop computers. Several items including a cash register, liquor and a video game were damaged.

On Wednesday, police arrested the male suspect, 24-year-old Danny Thomas Goldston. He has been charged with two counts of burglary related to the March 14 and March 20 incidents.

In addition, Goldston is charged with one count of larceny after a breaking and entering and one count of safecracking -- those two charges relate to the March 20 incident.

The female suspect, 39-year-old Linda Lafaye Keith, has been charged with one count of burglary concerning the March 14 incident.

Authorities say the suspects may also be linked to a March 18 burglary at Ba-Da Wings restaurant on Avent Ferry Road.

They are currently still investigating all the incidents.
