Wareham B&E Suspects Chased By Would Be Victim
A Wareham man chased down two suspects accused of breaking into his vehicle.
Police Chief Kevin Walsh says that at around 3 a.m. Monday officers were sent to the Locust St. area in Onset over a report of a motor vehicle break-in in progress and that the victim was chasing the two suspects on foot.
The victim told police he noticed the vehicle's interior light was on and went out to the driveway where the vehicle was parked to investigate.
He then says he saw two males running away.
Officers searched the area and found the two suspects, identified as 26-year-old Michael Thompson and 30-year-old Matthew Dillon-Murdock, both of Onset.
Both men were scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning in Wareham District Court on charges of Breaking & Entering into a motor vehicle and Larceny Under $250.
Thompson was also arrested on an outstanding warrant for a previous B&E into a motor vehicle incident that occurred just weeks ago.
Dillon-Murdock was also arrested on an outstanding warrant issued by Braintree District Court in 2007.
Walsh says that during the arrest both suspects were in possession of several items that have yet to be accounted for and residents in the Point Independence area, in particular the Oneset Heights area who may have noticed items missing from their vehicles, are urged to call Wareham Police detectives at (508) 295-1206.
