Wareham Man Arrested for Stolen Car, Crack Cocaine
On Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at approximately 5:00 pm, Detective Dean Decas reported receiving a LoJack signal that indicated a stolen vehicle was in the Wareham area.
The signal was tracked to a garage at 2591 Cranberry Highway, where the vehicle and a male, later identified as 35-year-old Wareham resident Tyrone Lindsay, were located.
