Groveland Police say a 17-year-old Haverhill man is one of two men who broke into cars this week after arriving in a stolen vehicle.

Police Chief Jeffrey Gillen reports the teenager, not named because of his age, was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property and breaking and entering into a motor vehicle.

“Fortunately, someone saw this suspicious behavior and called us in time to respond and identify one of these individuals,” Gillen said.

At about 9:21 p.m., Wednesday, police responded to a report of two males on Ashcroft Circle who had arrived in a suspicious vehicle and were walking into driveways and checking vehicle door handles. Five individuals were victims of the break-ins and the cars were unlocked. After an investigation, police learned the vehicle the two arrived in was stolen. Upon arrival, the two ran away from police, Gillen said.

With the help of the Georgetown Police Department and Amesbury Police Officer Thomas Nichols and his K-9, police were able to locate the 17-year-old.

Groveland Police are still seeking to identify the second man involved, and asks that anyone with information to call the Groveland Police Department at 978-521-1212.
