Newburyport Police Department Investigating Jewelry Store Burglary

NEWBURYPORT — City Marshal Mark Murray reports that the Newburyport Police Department is investigating an overnight break-in at a jewelry store.

At 2:26 a.m. Friday, April 26, Newburyport Police were dispatched to MK Benatti Jewelers, 1 State St., for a glass break alarm. While en route, officers were advised that a break-in had occurred a few hours earlier at a jewelry store in Salisbury.

Upon arrival, officers searched the building after observing that the glass front door and two display cases were broken. The suspect had fled the building with an undetermined amount of jewelry prior to officers’ arrival.

Inspector Michael Sugrue is leading the investigation into the incident, which remains active and ongoing at this time.
