COHASSET — Cohasset Police Chief William Quigley reports that a Boston man has been arrested and charged by Hanover Police in connection with several motor vehicle break-ins that occurred in the area recently, and additional charges from Cohasset Police are pending.
On Thursday morning, May 13, the Hanover Police Department arrested a 37-year-old Boston man on several motor vehicle and drug charges. The man was allegedly found to be in possession of numerous stolen items.
Because charges have not yet been formally filed by the Cohasset Police, the department is unable to publicly release the suspect’s identity at this time.
Through the investigation, Hanover and Cohasset detectives coordinated their efforts and were able to connect some of the recovered stolen property to a string of motor vehicles that were broken into in the area of North Main Street, Green Street and Red Gate Lane in Cohasset on Tuesday, May 11.
The man will be charged by Cohasset Police with multiple counts of Breaking and Entering and Receiving Stolen Property. As this is still an active investigation, more charges could follow.
“We thank the members of the Hanover Police for their hard work and diligence in assisting in this case,” Chief Quigley said.
Any resident who has information about the May 11 break-ins is asked to contact Cohasset Police Detectives at 781 383-1055 ext. 6107 or email [email protected].
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
