From the Falmouth Police:
Over the weekend the Maravista area of Falmouth experienced a dozen car break-ins that included the theft of a laptop, backpack, watches, tools, coins, medication, credit cards, and other items. Members of the community were notified via social media of the incidents and asked to be on the lookout for suspicious activity and to lock their cars.
Early Sunday morning an officer observed a male and female who immediately attempted to evade the officer by hiding behind a bush on Worcester Court. The officer stopped them and noticed that the male was wearing a backpack that she believed had been stolen over the weekend during the car break-ins. The backpack was searched and it contained other stolen items, including prescription medication.
As a result, Joshua Lauzon, age 25 of Falmouth and Ashley Jordan, age 26 of Falmouth were placed under arrest. Lauzon has been charged with several counts of Breaking & Entering—Motor Vehicle, Receiving Stolen Property, and Illegal Possession of Prescription Medication. Jordan was charged with Possession of Burglarious Instruments.
A search warrant was obtained and executed at Lauzon’s Milton Street residence. Detectives located several other stolen items, including a television, prescription medication, a gaming system, jewelry, a camera, credit cards and more. The items were believed to be taken from other car break-ins, as well as house break-ins.
Investigators believe Lauzon and Jordan will be charged with additional offenses.
