5-23-2017 larceny / Break and Enter / MV Crash


Monday May 22, 2017 Officers responded to an address on Newton St for a report of a possible B&E.  The reporting party believed a subcontractor working for the Town had left their keys in the ignition of a forklift parked on the property. It appears as though someone drove the forklift from the front of the yard into the recycling area of the transfer station, which contained televisions and lawn mowers waiting to be recycled. It appeared that several traffic control cones were knocked over, but that there was no other damage to property. The forklift was parked very closely to the original spot it had been left at on Friday. There was no apparent damage done to the forklift.  At this point he has no further information as to whether one of the subcontractors moved the forklift or it was moved by someone trespassing on the property.
