Men charged with Warren car break-ins

Posted

Two Massachusetts men arrested by Somerset police for a host of car break-ins in southeastern Massachusetts have been implicated in several car breaks reported last week in Warren, and will face charges, police said.

The men, Dylan Pollitt of New Bedford, and his cousin Nathan Heron of Somerset, were arrested last week in Somerset after detectives were able to tie them to a host of break-ins in Somerset. The men, both 20, were tied to the Warren breaks, in part, by a GPS unit found in their possession that pointed back to a Charity Drive home. The owner of that GPS didn't even know it had been stolen when Warren police visited him. The men were originally charged only in connection with the Masschusetts break-ins, but will face additional charges related to their alleged thefts from Warren. Warren police said the men were caught with thousands of dollars worth of allegedly stolen items.
