Police have arrested a suspect in a string of home break-ins as well as recovered some of the allegedly stolen property.

On Saturday, Jan. 23, police said that, after a months’ long investigation, they were able to issue a warrant for the suspected burglar’s arrest, Wilbraham Police said.

The arrest followed the execution of a search warrant at 524 Ridge Road in Wilbraham. There police allegedly found numerous stolen items and evidence pertaining to the house breaks.

Thomas Dean, Jr., 41, the homeowner, was arrested at his home on Saturday and charged with breaking and entering, and unarmed burglary in the nighttime for a felony, police said.

More charges are expected as the investigation continues, police said.

Previously, in November, police arrested Dean n a warrant for two counts of destruction of property, breaking and entering into a building, and attempt to commit a crime, according to WWLP.


If anyone has any information regarding this investigation, contact Sft. Shawn Baldwin or Det. Sean Casella or Det. Derek Florindo at (413) 596-3837.
