The same man who incurred the wrath of an elderly customer while allegedly robbing a Malden 7-Eleven last month was booked on new charges just a few weeks after his release from jail.

Michael McInnis, 34, of 197 Cross St., was arrested last Wednesday around 2:51 a.m. after a witness saw him breaking into Liberty Tax Service at 16 Irving St. McInnis faces charges of breaking and entering in the nighttime for a felony, possession of a burglarious instrument, malicious destruction of property over $250, and disorderly conduct.

Malden police were dispatched to the Irving Street business after a  witness reported two parties attempting to break into the building. According to reports, the unnamed witness said a party wearing a gray winter jacket was “smashing” the glass front entry door while a second party wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt had crossed to the southwest area near Main Street.

Upon arriving at the scene, police located McInnis in the Cheverus School playground. His accomplice, later identified as Crystle Sears, 22, was located nearby. The witness positively identified both parties.
 
During a pat frisk of Sears, who also resides at 197 Cross St., police located a wood chisel in her right coat sleeve. Sears was arrested and charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime for a felony, possession of a burglarious instrument and malicious destruction of property over $250.

Officers conducted a search of the area and confirmed that the door to 16 Irving St. had been forced open and the business entered. It was unknown if any property had been stolen.
 
McInnis was arrested last month after an alleged robbery at 7-Eleven on Salem Street in which he stole $100 from the register. He was released from Middlesex Jail in Cambridge in mid-February, after posting $1,500 bail, according to a jail spokesman. He was returned to the prison following his arrest last week and had his bail revoked, according to a Malden District Court spokeswoman. His pre-trial hearing is scheduled for March 29.
