Man Charged With Wrentham Housebreak

On 2-27-2012, Officer Stephen Saulnier took an initial report from a West Street resident whose home had been broken into and robbed.  Thousands of dollars worth of jewelry was taken from the home while the homeowner was at church.

Officer Barry McGrath and Sgt. James Barrett conducted a follow-up investigation on the break, and on April 20th, 2012, identified two men who were involved in the crime.  A warrant was issued for one of the suspects which led to information on the second man, who is currently being held in jail on a separate case.

Area gold buyer photographs helped Officer McGrath and Sgt. Barrett identify the victim.

Here are several other images of jewelry thought to be stolen property.  If you think you can identify anything in these images, please email this department at .  It will be important to produce receipts or other documenting proof to establish the property as yours.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Wrentham Police Department Launches Statewide High-Visibility Click It or Ticket Enforcement Mobilization
Massachusetts is Serious about Saving Lives through Seat Belt Use

Wrentham, MA. –In our continuing effort to save lives, the Wrentham Police Department, in partnership with the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s (EOPSS) Highway Safety Division (HSD), the State Police and over 120 other local departments, is launching a high-visibility seat belt enforcement mobilization called Click It or Ticket.  The message is simple: Massachusetts drivers and passengers should always wear their seat belts or be prepared to face the consequences. 

During the “Click It or Ticket” mobilization, which runs from May 14th through June 3rd, thousands of extra state and local police will patrol the state’s streets and highways in a concerted effort to promote and enforce seat belt use with the ultimate goal of saving lives.

Many departments across the state have adopted zero-tolerance policies for seat belt violations signaling the increasing importance of seat belt use. In fact, if pulled over, everyone in the car found not wearing a seat belt will be ticketed.

Seat belt use can be the difference between life and death.  It is the best defense in a crash.  Remember to Buckle Up, Every Trip, Every Time.
