The driver of the Jaguar 45-year old Marc Fater of Marstons Mills was not injured. Traffic was heavily jammed along Route 28 because of the crash and a temporary closure by the Centerville fire station while the helicopter landed and took off.

Barnstable Police investigate B&E through a rooftop

Barnstable Police check a Main St. Hyannis roof for evidence after a reported B&E.
HYANNIS - Passing motorists may have thought some SWAT operation was underway but actually about 10 a.m. Sunday, Barnstable Police responded to a report of a breaking and entering at 342 Main St. Hyannis by Barnstable Road. Four cruisers responded and discovered the Odd Fellows Lodge on the North Street side of the building had been broken into through a rooftop hatch. Police are seen above on the roof looking for evidence. It was not clear if anything was taken but according to published reports the suspect left a vital clue at the scene-his drivers license. In a bizarre turn Police Officer Peter Myrbeck realized the license belonged to a man he had assisted with a medical condition at the Cascade Motor Lodge earlier. 36-year old Barrett Snow of Nantucket was arrested and charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime with intent to commit a felony, larceny from a building and possession of burglarious tools. Police say they recovered evidence in Snow's motel room. (Story and photos by Frank Paparo). welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
