HULL — Chief John E. Dunn reports that the Hull Police Department arrested a man for burglary last week.
WILLIAM FRANCIS NICKERSON, AGE 38, OF HINGHAM, is charged with:
- Unarmed Burglary
- Larceny of Construction Tools
- Larceny from a Building
- Possession of a Burglarious Instrument
- Possession of Heroin (Subsequent Offense)
On Thursday, Oct. 12, at approximately 9:58 p.m., Hull Police were dispatched to 14 Lewis St. for a report of a break in progress at a home under construction. The calling party reported seeing a man entering the basement of the house.
Upon arrival, police observed an open basement door and a man identified as NICKERSON standing around several tools and construction equipment inside the home. After further investigation, police found several tools labeled with the name of the construction company that is working on the house in the bed of NICKERSON’S pick-up truck, which was parked in front of the residence.
Police learned that NICKERSON was previously fired from the construction company and did not have permission to be at the property or to take the tools. NICKERSON was placed under arrest and taken into custody without incident.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
