RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace reports that the Randolph Police Department is actively seeking to identify a possible suspect in a string of breaking and entering cases in town.
On Friday, March 6, Randolph Police responded to two separate reports of breaking and entering at homes in the same neighborhood. The first occurred at approximately 1:10 p.m. at a Edwin Street residence, and the second at approximately 1:40 p.m. at a Soren Street residence.
Jewelry and cash was reportedly stolen from the first home, and jewelry was reportedly stolen from the second home. Both break-ins appear similar in nature, with significant damage done to the front and side doors of the homes.
Through video footage captured by neighbors, police have identified a middle aged black male suspect who was recorded wearing a white jacket and dark flannel pajama pants, and during the second break-in was seen wearing the same clothes along with a white baseball hat. He was seen carrying a black bag over his shoulder.
Two victims of these break-ins were targeted in the same fashion during similar incidents in 2015.
The individual is not wanted by police at this time, but police are looking to identify him.
In addition to these two incidents, an attempted break-in was reported at a residence on North Main Street on Friday, March 6 that resulted in significant damage to the home’s front and side doors. An additional break-in was reported on Saturday, Feb. 29 involving a suspect climbing through the kitchen window of a home on Eugenia Street that was captured by a camera at the home.
The investigation is ongoing by Randolph Police, and additional patrol and surveillance units will remain in the area. Anyone with information is advised to contact the Randolph Police Department at 781-963-1212 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
