Groveland Police Charge Two In Connection with Motor Vehicle Break-In
GROVELAND – Deputy Chief Jeffrey Gillen reports that the Groveland Police Department will charge two men in connection with a motor vehicle break-in that occurred last week.
A 25-YEAR OLD MAN FROM GROVELAND is charged with five counts of Breaking and Entering and Larceny by Check.
A 21-YEAR-OLD MAN FROM MANCHESTER, N.H., is charged with Uttering, Larceny by Check, and Receiving Stolen Property Over $250.
On Aug. 11, the Groveland Police Department received multiple reports of items stolen from motor vehicles that were broken into overnight.
Police were able to tie the two suspects to one of the break-ins after a signed check that was left in one of the vehicle’s was cashed by the Manchester, N.H. man, who said he had received it from the Groveland man.
Groveland Police believe the Groveland man is connected to several other motor vehicle break-ins from last week.
“Our investigation remains open and ongoing, but I am pleased that, due to diligent police work, we were able to link these two suspects to at least one of our motor vehicle break-ins,” Deputy Chief Gillen said. “We remind residents to always lock their car doors to prevent thefts like this.”
Both of the suspects will be summonsed to Haverhill District Court at a later date. Their names will be released at arraignment.
