On September 1, 2011 at approximately 12:15 p.m., Patrolman Richard Hernandez responded to 157 East Westfield Avenue (Vinhus restaurant) on a report of theft. The complainant stated that at approximately 7:25 a.m., an unknown male removed a 24′ aluminum extension ladder and a blue chair from the rear parking lot of his business.
The complainant had a video surveillance recording of the incident. The suspect was driving an older model white GMC single cab pick-up truck and entered the rear parking lot from Union Road. The truck then stopped and a white male driver, thin build, wearing a khaki adjustable baseball cap, a grey short sleeve t-shirt, dark cargo shorts, white/black running sneakers, and a wrist watch on his left hand proceeded to take a blue chair and place it in the bed of his pickup truck along with the extension ladder. The male then fled onto Dalton Street in an unknown direction.
The value of the ladder is estimated at $175.00; the chair had no monetary value.
