Norwood Police Respond to Break and Entry on Granite Street

Norwood Police are also urging residents to report suspicious persons.

Editor's Note: The following information was provided by the Norwood Police Department.


On Thursday February 21, 2013 Norwood Police responded to a past Break and Entry and Larceny which occurred in a home on Granite Street.  At approximately 6:50 p.m. officers responded to a call from a resident who reported that he had just come home to find that his house had been broken into and that a computer and jewelry had been stolen.  Entry to the home was made through a rear window.  The culprit(s) attempted to steal a television but were not successful. 

During a canvass of the neighborhood, officers learned that a neighbor had seen a young man acting suspiciously just prior to the B&E.  The person was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a hat with some sort of light attached to the top.

While officers were investigating the break, they learned of another attempted break and entry around the corner on Warren Street.  No entry was gained to the second home.  It is believed that an audible alarm scared the housebreaker(s) away.  Officers canvassed the neighborhood of this crime as well and learned from one witness that a young male wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt was seen in the area. 

The Norwood Police Department urges citizens to be alert and attentive to any person or activity out of the ordinary in their neighborhoods and to report all suspicious activity and persons to the Norwood Police without delay at 781-440-5100.

A neighborhood watch is a good idea. Why don't we have that. Or do we. I live on Granite St. I watch this place as much as I can. It's hard in the winter. There are actually two of us that try to watch this place. I've lived here since 1954. To my knowledge this is the first break in here. Something tells me..there will be alot more house alarms and big dogs now. If there is a watch the neighbors can get involved with, I'm in. J

On the Granite St. B&E, it seems to me that there was a least two people involved. That means a look out. So as the police say, report the suspicious activity. You know who belongs here and who does not. If you care like some of us. Don't be hero , just call the police.
