Sunday, September 23rd

1:37 AM- Officers responded to Winthrop Road for a break and entering.  Officers on scene met with the homeowners who informed Police that they left home around 10:00 AM on 9/22/18 and returned around 1:10 AM on 9/23/18.  They reported closing and locking windows.  The window screens were said to be in place before departure and all exterior doors were secured.  The home alarm system was not armed for pet purposes.  When they returned home they discovered the master bedroom had been ransacked and the shade in one of the upstairs bedrooms had been drawn.  Officers determined that it appeared that the suspect initially attempted entry through the rear sliding door but it was secured by a piece of wood.  The suspect then climbed atop a gas grill on the rear deck and scaled a low hanging part of the roof whereupon it appears the suspect cut a hole in the screen of a bedroom window at the rear of the home and a small pry tool mark was observed where he unsuccessfully attempted to pry a bedroom window open.  The suspect then appears to have successfully gained entry through another bedroom window where the screen and window were pried, breaking the lock off the wood window.  It appears the suspect attempted entry into several rooms and stole a family heirloom. Two other breaks were reported in the same area on that day.  This case is being investigated.

11:15 AM- Officers were dispatched to Beacon Street for a stolen bicycle report.  The reporting party stated she locked her bike outside her apartment building on Beacon Street around 12:00 PM on 9/22/18.  Around 5:00 PM the same day her bike was still locked up outside the building.  On 9/23/18 around 8:00 AM her roommate alerted her that her bike lock had been cut and the bike was missing.  Her bike helmet was also taken.  The bike is described as a baby blue and black Scott Aspect Mountain Bike.  The bike has a sticker on the frame that reads “The Red Bicycle”.  The bike has a white paint stain on the frame.  It also has clip in pedals.  This case is under investigation.
