Detective Sergeant Scott Szymkiewicz said he was aware of the arrest and that a Boylston house break is still under investigation.
WEST BOYLSTON - Police have named five suspects in two separate house breaks that occurred Aug.
A man apprehended by Paxton police for breaking and entering has been tied to house breaks in multiple Central Massachusetts towns, including Boylston and West Boylston.
Police recognized a similar method to several house breaks that had recently been reported in Sterling and Holden, Tavano said.
In many cases, the house breaks are being committed by young people, who have a drug addiction and who are looking for items to pawn quickly.
Tavano said it fits what police know to be the method of operation for many of the daytime house breaks. Suspects will walk on foot, typically with a backpack or other type of bag, because it gives them flexibility to move around.
Tavano also warned residents of something he said has become a common ruse used for daytime house breaks
Some residents may be breathing a premature sigh of relief after a rash of about 10 house breaks
since mid-August and twice as many car break-ins during that time.
