Yarmouth Police nab two nighttime car thieves early Monday morning

Two suspects found GPS units, other electronics

WEST YARMOUTH - On Monday, August 30, 2010 at approximately 2:30 a.m, Yarmouth Police Patrol Investigator Christopher Van Ness encountered two suspicious males as they were walking in the area of the Englewood Beach parking lot on New Hampshire Avenue in West Yarmouth.  Knowing that numerous overnight thefts have occurred throughout West Yarmouth this summer, Patrol Investigator David Schneeweis arrived on the scene to provide back up and investigative assistance.

While speaking with the two males, Patrol Investigator Van Ness observed a GPS unit and several assorted electronic components in an open duffle bag. When the officers attempted to detain both subjects, one of them physically resisted and repeatedly pushed and shoved and tried to pull away.  Patrol Officer Christopher Marino arrived and officers were able to overcome the resistance and the subject was placed in custody.

Nathan D. Schofield, 20, of Partridge Valley Road in West Yarmouth and an unidentified 16-year-old male juvenile were charged as follows:

Nathan D. Schofield

  • Two counts of Felony Breaking and Entering
  • Felony Possession of Burglarious Tools
  • Two counts of Felony Larceny
  • Destruction of Property

Unidentified Juvenile

  • Two counts of Felony Breaking and Entering
  • Two counts of Felony Larceny
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Disorderly Conduct

By using the memory function of the GPS units, Patrol Investigator Schneeweis was able to locate the owners and determined that both had been stolen sometime earlier in the night from unlocked vehicles parked in nearby neighborhoods.

Both suspects were placed under arrest and held overnight at Yarmouth Police Headquarters.  Both are scheduled for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court this morning.
