Two Men Charged with Antiques Show Larcenies

by Chief John Moore
May 21, 2013

On February 24, 2013 at the conclusion of the annual Antiques Show held at the Holliston High School a vendor at the event reported that his van had been stolen with many valuable items that had been displayed at the show inside.

 

Officer Dan Griffith, who was the initial reporting officer, arranged for a teletype to be sent out regarding the stolen motor vehicle and the contents therein. Approximately two hours later the van was recovered about a mile from the scene by Highway Department personnel who were out snow plowing the streets. An examination of the interior disclosed that many items were missing. 

On February 28, 2013, Detective Chuck Todd received a telephone call from a Detective John York of the Barnstable Police Department. Detective York reported that in the course of a narcotics investigation he developed information from that suspect that implicated him and his father in the Antiques larceny. According to that suspect the van was stolen after planning this crime on day one of the Antiques Show. The van was then driven a short distance where many of the antiques were transferred to a rental car. The majority of the antiques were discarded on the side of the road in Holliston. Detective Todd was able to estimate the location of the antiques based upon the suspect’s description of where they might be, and Sergeant Dave Gatchell was able to locate these items while on patrol. 

A father and son team from Cape Cod has been charged with larceny of a motor vehicle and larceny over $250, and they are scheduled to be arraigned at Framingham District Court in the near future. 

This case represents the investigative abilities of law enforcement when information is expeditiously sent out, when officers are aware of all potential clues to unsolved crimes, and we work collectively to apprehend and prosecute offenders.
