After receiving a tip from a resident, North Reading police arrested a Danvers man and a Stoneham woman on Marblehead Street for an attempted break-in Thursday.
According to police, around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, a resident reported that he saw a suspicious man and woman walking behind a neighbor's home. Police responded and saw the man and woman matching the description given by the resident. Both subjects attempted to run, police said, before complying with the officers.
After an investigation, police were able to determine that the man and woman had attempted to break into a home on Marblehead Street and were interrupted when officers arrived, police said.
Jessica Damico, 30, of 95 High St., Stoneham, was also arrested on charges of attempted breaking and entering in the daytime with intent to commit a felony, possession of burglarious tools, trespassing, conspiracy to commit a crime (breaking and entering), wanton destruction of property and two counts of possession of a class B substance (Suboxone and Clonazepam).
Paul Bradley, 28, of 62 Water St., Danvers, was also arrested on charges of attempted breaking and entering in the daytime with intent to commit a felony, possession of burglarious tools, trespassing, conspiracy to commit a crime (breaking and entering) and wanton destruction of property.
Both Bradley and Damico were arraigned at Woburn District Court Friday.
Chief Michael Murphy is grateful to the officers who acted quickly and made the arrests as well as the neighbor who reported suspicious activity.
“North Reading is safer today because of the actions of the resident who called the police and the efforts of the responding officers who were able to quickly apprehend both people for attempting to break into a home,” Murphy said.
He went on to say that neighborhoods are known best by those who live there, and he encourages residents to look out for their neighbors.
“It is important that residents continue to look out for their neighbor and report any suspicious activity to police. The quick call to the police in this incident may have prevented more serious crimes from occurring in our community,” he said.
