On Friday, May 24, officers from the Marion Police Department, with assistance from members of the Plymouth Police Department and Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department, arrested the following subject on a warrant that was issued stemming from an ongoing investigation related to a housebreak that occurred at a residence on Blueberry Way in Marion: Richard T. Auld, age 26, 6 Wall Wind Dr., Plymouth.
Auld was charged with: 1) Breaking and Entering daytime for a felony, 2) Larceny from a building, 3) Malicious or Wanton Damage or Defacement, 4) Trespass, 5) use of a motor vehicle in a Felony/Larceny. He was booked at the Marion Police Department and transported to Wareham District Court for arraignment.
On May 9, officers had responded to a call for two suspicious males walking through the wood line in the Blueberry Way neighborhood. Upon arrival they located a residence that had apparent signs of a forced break. A suspicious vehicle was also noted as being parked in the nearby cemetery. The vehicle came back registered to a party in Plymouth.
After further investigation and surveillance, the vehicle was located and it was determined it was involved in the break. On May 10, numerous items were recovered in the vehicle. These items were connected to the break in Marion as well as other area housebreaks. A warrant was then issued for one of the suspects. The identity of the second suspect is still under investigation at this time.
