On 9-5-2012, Officer Hearon responded to the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets for a reported shoplifting at the Timberland store.  Officer Hearon observed surveilance video, identifying three suspects and began to search the mall area with Officer Schwalbe.

Officers Hearon and Schwalbe saw the three suspects walking away from their location and began to follow them at which point two began running. 

One of the suspects was apprehended in the parking lot after a brief foot chase while the second ran into the woods near the mall.  Officers from the Massachusetts State Police, Norfolk Police and Plainville Police responded to assist with search.

Lieutenant Detective McGrath located the suspect riding a bicycle he had stolen during his flight from police.  Suspects were arrested and charged with various offenses.

Suspects Arrested in west Wrentham

Two men were arrested on various charges on Hillside Drive on 9-5-2012 when a nearby resident contacted police about a suspicious vehicle in a driveway.  The witness told police that there were two men on the property of a vacant home and saw one of them in the house.

Officers Saulnier and O'Connell and Sergeant Barrett arrived a detained the men.  After a brief on-scene investigation, both men were arrested.

The Wrentham Police are actively investigating multiple house breaks in the west end of town.  Even though the police do not believe this arrest to be connected with other recent crimes in the area, Chief Anderson and Lieutenant Detective  McGrath would like to commend the resident for contacting police in this incident, and to remain vigilant in the coming weeks and months.
