For the Transcript
Winthrop Police this week released a wanted poster featuring the photograph of a Winthrop man, who is now wanted in connection with a recent rash of daytime break-ins in the Court Road area.
According to Winthrop Police Chief Terence Delehanty, police are looking for Joseph Paci, 36, of 35 Court Road who isÂ also known to frequent 2 Nancia Street, Apartment 7 in Winthrop.
â€œThanks to some physical evidence recovered at the scenes and some good police work, we are now searching for this suspect – Joseph Paci – in connection with at least two of the break-ins,â€ said Chief Delehanty. â€œThis is still an active investigation, so we can not divulge details of the case, but we have obtained a warrant for his arrest from East Boston District Court.
Anyone with information regarding Joseph Paci or his potential whereabouts is encouraged to contact Winthrop Police at 617-846-1212 or the Boston Regional Intelligence Center (BRIC) at 617-343-4328.
Last week, Chief Delehanty warned residents to make sure that their homes were locked and secured before leaving, as a rash on break-ins had occurred when the suspect had gained entry through unlocked doors.
â€œThis is just a reminder for people that they really should make sure their homes are locked, when they are away,â€ said Delehanty. â€œAlso, if anyone sees suspicious activity, someone standing on a neighborâ€™s porch that doesnâ€™t belong there, for instance, please call 911 and alert the police.â€
Despite the break in the case that has led police to search for Paci, and ask for the publicâ€™s help in apprehending him, Chief Delehanty stressed that homeowners and residents must remain vigilant and ensure their homes and personal property are safe before leaving for the day.
