A Bourne man is under arrest after allegedly burglarizing a home in Acushnet.

Acushnet Police say a woman arrived at her Hathaway Road home Tuesday morning and saw that the window on her front door had been smashed. While the woman was on the phone with police, an unidentified man exited her home, got into his vehicle, and fled the scene with stolen property.

Acushnet Police soon caught up with the suspect, and after a brief pursuit the vehicle was stopped and the suspect, identified as 53-year-old Harold Sherman of Bourne, was arrested.

The stolen property was returned to the homeowner.

Police identify Sherman, originally from Acushnet, as a career criminal. Sherman has been arraigned in New Bedford District Court on charges of breaking and entering in the daytime, larceny, and multiple motor vehicle violations.
