Stoneham Police Arrest Three Men Following Vehicle Break-In
STONEHAM — Police Chief James McIntyre reports that the Stoneham Police Department arrested three men allegedly involved in breaking into a pickup truck Tuesday night.
MICHAEL DICOLOGERO, AGE 19, RICHARD CECERE, AGE 19 and KYLE NOFTLE, AGE 18, ALL OF REVERE, were charged with:
- Breaking and Entering in the Nighttime to Commit a Felony
- Receiving Stolen Property Under $250
At approximately 8:38 p.m. on Tuesday, police were called to Bonad Road for a report of a motor vehicle break-in.
Officers responded to the area and spoke with the resident who owned the vehicle that had been broken into. He told police that he was inside his home when he saw someone enter his pickup truck.
The victim called police and chased after the suspect, later identified as DICOLOGERO. The victim also stated that he saw two men inside of a gray vehicle that drove off when he began to follow DICOLOGERO.
DICOLOGERO ran out of both of the sandals he was wearing, leaving him with only socks on his feet. He ran through multiple backyards in the snow in an attempt to flee the truck’s owner. A canine from the Melrose Police Department responded to the area to assist Stoneham and Reading police officers in the search for DICOLOGERO.
As police were searching the area, a gray vehicle matching the description given by the victim drove by an officer and was stopped. Inside the vehicle were CECERE and NOFTLE. They initially denied having anything to do with the break-in.
A short time later, dispatch received a call from a resident on nearby Larson Road reporting that a man was at his door wearing only socks and asking to use a telephone.
Officers responded and positively identified DICOLOGERO. Inside his pockets police found $3.01 in loose change believed to have been taken from the victim’s pickup truck.
Based upon the officers’ investigation, all three men were arrested and were expected to be arraigned in Woburn District Court Wednesday.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
