Two Arrested in Wareham Armed Home Invasion, Third Suspect Sought
WAREHAM — Two people are arrested following an armed home invasion in Wareham, and police are searching for a third suspect.
Tuesday, January 15 at about 5:10 p.m., Wareham Police Officers Michael Phinney and James White responded to Choctaw Drive for a reported home invasion. At the scene, a male victim reported that two males and a female had broken into the home, and began beating him with baseball bats. In addition to beating him, the men stole the victim’s wallet, which contained a large quantity of cash. A second victim was also struck several times by the suspects.
Wareham Police detectives began an immediate investigation and the suspects were quickly identified. Furthermore, detectives obtained arrest warrants for the three suspects on Wednesday morning at the Wareham District Court.
Armed with the warrants, Wareham detectives, Bourne Police detectives, and troopers from the State Police Violent Apprehension Section arrested 30-year-old Katherine N. Greene of 31 Dry Cedar Swamp Road, Bourne, at her residence around noon on Wednesday. Shortly after that, the detectives arrested another suspect, 24-year-old Jeffrey Johnson at his residence at 16 Catherine Court in East Wareham.
A third suspect, 38-year-old Daniel Russ of Marstons Mills is still being sought.
In addition to the arrests, detectives confiscated the weapons believed to be used in the home invasion. All three suspects face charges of home invasion, armed robbery and two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Police say it should be noted that this incident was not random and the victims refused medical assistance. The two suspects were transported to Wareham District Court after being processed at police headquarters.
