A Rochester man has been sentenced to 15 months in the House of Correction after pleading guilty to a number of charges stemming from a break in at the Rochester Golf Course in July of this year.
Michael J. Eldridge, 31, of Wordell Street, pleaded guilty in Wareham District Court to breaking and entering in the night time, malicious destruction of property over $250, malicious destruction of property under $250, breaking into a depository and larceny from a building.
Eldridge was arrested July 23 by Rochester Detective Donald Kemmett after a week-long investigation into the break in. The suspect was identified from video surveillance footage.
Rochester Police Chief Paul Magee said, “This was great police work that resulted in jail time for an individual who has a long record. I am happy he is off the streets.” Rochester Police Officers Dylan Hicks and Nathan Valente assisted with the investigation.
