Rowley Police Respond to Motor Vehicle Crash Involving Tractor Trailer

ROWLEY — Chief Scott A. Dumas reports that the Rowley Police Department is investigating after a motor vehicle crashed into a tractor trailer this morning, sending the driver and her infant to the hospital.

At 10:45 a.m., Rowley Police received a report of a two-vehicle crash on Haverhill Street (Route 133), between Route 1 and Main Street (Route 1A).

A preliminary on scene investigation indicates that a 40-year-old woman from Haverhill was traveling west in a 2016 Kia Sportage on Haverhill Street when she crossed the double yellow line and struck a tractor trailer that was heading east. The woman’s car then came to rest against a tree.

Rowley firefighters used hydraulic rescue tools to extricate the woman from her vehicle. She was transported to an area hospital with injuries that are believed to be serious. Her infant, who was in the car at the time of the crash, was also transported to an area hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

The driver of the tractor trailer, a 51-year-old man from New Bedford, was not injured.

Both vehicles sustained substantial damage and were towed from the scene.

Following the crash, Haverhill Street, from Main Street to Route 1, was closed in both directions for several hours. The road re-opened at 1:30 p.m.

Ipswich Police and Fire, along with the Newbury Fire Department, responded to the scene for mutual aid. The Massachusetts State Police’s truck team also responded to evaluate the tractor trailer.

The crash remains under investigation by the Rowley Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police.

Rowley Police Investigation Leads to Arrest on Theft Charges

Tips from the Public Helped Identify Suspect

ROWLEY — Chief Scott A. Dumas reports that the Rowley Police Department arrested a man after an investigation revealed that he allegedly stole a woman’s wallet while she was shopping last weekend.

JACOB BEAUBIER, AGE 33, OF DANVERS was arrested and charged with Larceny from a Person.

On Monday, Nov. 13, Rowley Police received a report from a woman who reported that her wallet had been stolen while she was shopping at Market Basket, located at 231 Newburyport Turnpike, the previous day.

Rowley Police then began an investigation, which included reviewing surveillance footage and making images of the suspect public via social media. Police subsequently received tips from members of the public who identified BEAUBIER as the suspect in the surveillance images.

On Thursday, Nov. 16, the victim reached out to police to report that the wallet had been returned to their mailbox. Rowley Police subsequently worked with law enforcement partners to identify and locate BEAUBIER, who turned himself in at the Rowley Police Station later Thursday evening.

BEAUBIER was released on bail and was scheduled to be arraigned today at Newburyport District Court.

“This arrest was the result of the work of committed investigators, who were aided in their efforts by members of the public who helped us to identify and bring this suspect into custody,” Chief Dumas said.

Rowley Police Investigating Multiple Burglaries

ROWLEY — Chief Scott A. Dumas reports that the Rowley Police Department is investigating two home burglaries that occurred earlier this week.

On Monday, Oct. 23, at approximately 2:47 p.m., officers responded to a report of a break-in on Boxford Road. Upon arrival, officers spoke with the resident and learned that she had returned home to find a window and door open that had been closed when she’d left earlier in the day.

Officers began an investigation and observed that the screen had been removed from a window near the kitchen door, as well as an open bathroom window with visible hand prints on the windowsill. Officers also noticed that several drawers and cabinets were left open or dumped out throughout the home and that the suspect had paid special attention to jewelry containers. Rowley Police are awaiting a full inventory of missing items from the homeowner. Georgetown Police also assisted in the investigation and processing of the scene.

Neighbors who had been home during the time that the victim was away noted that they had seen a white or beige four-door SUV parked in the driveway.

At approximately 5:36 p.m., Rowley Police received a report of a second break-in on Boxford Road. Responding Officers observed evidence of forced entry at the rear of the home and, while conducting a search of the residence, noticed items strewn about in some rooms, and a bedroom in complete disarray. Rowley Police again requested the assistance of Georgetown Police in processing the scene.

Several pieces of jewelry were later determined to be missing from the second victim’s home.

Given the nature of the two incidents and the proximity of the two homes to one another — less than a quarter mile apart — Rowley Police believe the two break-ins are connected. Both incidents remain under investigation by the Rowley Police Department, which has shared information about the burglaries with fellow law enforcement agencies.

Anyone who believes they may have information about the burglaries is asked to call Rowley Police Sgt. Matthew Ziev at 978-948-7644.
