Trick or Treating Thefts: Purse Stolen and a B&E

Police are investigating two incidents that occurred on Halloween evening.

Northborough police are investigating two incidents that occurred on Halloween evening. Both involved thefts, but it is unknown whether the two are related.

Police said one incident occurred when a female was trick-or-treating with her children near 45 Lincoln St. She and the children went to the house to get Halloween candy, leaving a pocketbook behind in a wagon used to pull the children. When she returned, the pocketbook and all its contents had been stolen. A person of interest was located in the area, said Sgt. Brian Griffin, and identified, but denied any involvement. Officer DiDonato is investigating. 

Also on Halloween, at 6 p.m., a resident arrived home on Brigham Street to find the house had been broken into sometime between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The suspect, police said, got in by removing the screen and climing in through a window in the rear of the house.

The suspect opened most drawers and cabinets in the house, taking prescription medication and jewelry from the home. There are no suspects.
