Investigation led to the issuance of an arrest warrant, charging fifth-degree larceny.

BEST-POLICE-Patch-EVER-275x300At this week’s Police Commission meeting, Chief Gagne recapped October’s incident reports, including the Oct. 24 burglary complaint on Highland Terrace during which an elderly woman woke to find a stocky man wearing a hood inside her bedroom.

Investigating officers found that the person had pride open a door and a jewelry box had been taken.

A K-9 track led to the road, so perhaps the suspect got into a car at that point, according to the report.

• Officers responded to a burglary complaint on Longmeadow Road on October 3 around 3:45 p.m.

According to the report tools were taken from an unlocked garage.

• Police were dispatched to the Racebrook Wine and Liquor Store at 3:49 a.m. on Oct. 18 for a burglar alarm.

Someone had forced entry into the building and took cash and cigarettes.

Investigation revealed that Milford had a similar burglary soon afterward on the same night. The two departments are working together on the investigation.
