On April 11th a Wrentham family reported property missing from their home. Sgt. James Barrett conducted an investigation along with the assistance of Off. Barry McGrath that led to the charging of Michelle O'Harte for felony larceny from the family. O'Harte worked as a babysitter for the family for months, caring for their two small children. During her employment, she is believed to have stolen hundreds of dollars worth of jewelry and clothing.
Officer McGrath has been working with area gold buyers, collecting information that has led police to suspects in house breaks and other crimes. O'Harte had sold several items for cash which provided the police with evidence that was instrumental in bringing charges against her.
