Newport Burglary Suspect Arrested in Holyoke, Mass.
NEWPORT — Chief Seth DiSanto is pleased to report that a man wanted by the Newport Police Department in connection with an August business break-in was arrested in Holyoke, Mass. last night.
DANIEL GREENWOOD, AGE 41, whose most recent known addresses are in TROY and COVENTRY, is charged with the following by the Newport Police:
- Attempted Burglary
- Unlawful Mischief
- Attempting to Elude
- Gross Negligent Operation
- Excessive Speed
- Resisting Arrest
GREENWOOD was arrested inside a McDonald’s restaurant in Holyoke Monday night, by a Holyoke Police lieutenant. He is expected to face additional charges in Massachusetts today. Newport Police will then be seeking for him to be extradited back to Vermont.
An arrest warrant was issued for GREENWOOD on Aug. 8, after he allegedly broke into the West Side Deli on Highland Avenue. At approximately 4:42 a.m., an officer was dispatched for a report of a person inside the store. Upon arrival, an officer began searching the area and was joined by an off-duty officer who was passing through the area.
The officers located a man, later identified as GREENWOOD, on one side of the building and attempted to establish a perimeter. GREENWOOD then allegedly emerged from a bush where he had been hiding and ran toward a gold SUV parked nearby. One of the officers attempted to subdue GREENWOOD and ordered him to stop, but GREENWOOD allegedly revved the SUV’s engine and eventually accelerated onto Highland Avenue at a high rate of speed. The officer lost sight of the speeding vehicle, but investigators later located a piece of the vehicle’s front end, including a license plate registered to another vehicle owned by GREENWOOD.
Chief DiSanto wishes to thank the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department, the U.S. Marshals Service, Vermont State Police and Holyoke Police for their assistance in the arrest.
“Teamwork by multiple agencies has today resulted in the apprehension of a dangerous fugitive, and I am very grateful for the assistance rendered to the Newport Police Department by our neighbors and partners,” Chief DiSanto said.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
