Update on Home Break-Ins

    Last week Brookline experienced a rash of home break-ins. A fingerprint was found at one of the scenes on Aspinwall Ave., which led to the identification of Jose A. Quinones, age 21 [08/02/1992]. Quinones is a Boston resident at 3037 Washington Street. A warrant was issued by Brookline District Court. This past weekend Boston Police apprehended Quinones in Boston. Quinones is being linked to three instances of Breaking and Entering in Brookline.
    Today a second suspect, Thomas Mello age 47 [10/14/1965], was arrested by Brookline officers. Mello has no known address. Officers were dispatched to a residence on Welland Rd. at 11 a.m. this morning after receiving a report of suspicious activity. Officers were able to interrupt Mello in the process of Breaking and Entering. Mello has been arrested and is being investigated in regards to his possible involvement in other home break-ins.
