Sudbury Police charged two Boston men in connection with a Dec. 30, 2008, break-in at Lotus Blossom restaurant.

Police arrested Khanh Van Tang, 40, of 100 Sydney St., Apt. 2, Dorchester last Wednesday on a warrant out of Framingham District Court for breaking and entering at night with intent to commit a felony, larceny over $250, wanton destruction of property and conspiracy.

Last Thursday, police charged Yong Qiu Huang, 35, of 86B West Brookline St., Boston, with the same offenses. He will be summoned to court.

An alarm at Lotus Blossom on Dec. 30 alerted police who discovered cut phone lines and forced entry at the rear of the restaurant. An undisclosed amount of a cash was missing.

Sudbury police called Wayland and Concord police, who had worked on similar break-ins.

“Using intelligence from Wayland and Concord, we developed two suspects,” said Sudbury police Lt. Scott Nix.

Police from the three towns searched Tang’s home Wednesday night.

“We found evidentiary items that we feel linked Tang to the breaking and entering,” said Nix.
