PAC LOCATES ARMED AND WANTED BURGLAR
On Friday, April, 6, 2018, at 4PM, Yarmouth Police Proactive Anti-Crime Unit Officer Nick Ambrosini located a person in the parking lot of Cape Cod Hospital who was wanted for committing a burglary at a home in West Yarmouth.
Fellow Officer Sean Gannon and Ambrosini approached the suspect who was still seated in the driver’s seat of a vehicle and placed him under arrest for the burglary.
Upon pat frisking him for weapons, Officers located a pocket knife clipped to his front pants pocket. Further inspection of the knife showed it had a spring assisted blade approximately 4″ long. Due to the spring assisted blade, the knife is illegal to carry in Massachusetts as a switchblade.
During the booking inventory of the suspect, Officers located an 8MG Suboxone film strip in his wallet.
The knife and Suboxone were tagged and placed into evidence.
The suspect—who has 110 entries on his Massachusetts record—is scheduled for arraignment today in the Barnstable District Court.
