Featured Incident -
The owner of a salon at 107 Main Street called police on Monday, Sept. 2, at 6:41 p.m. to report a breaking and entering that had been discovered about an hour earlier.
According to the owner, it appeared someone had entered the business through a window because the area surrounding it was disturbed and the blinds were as well. The owner said a box with about $300-$400 was missing.
Officers found the grass outside the window was overgrown, but some of it was matted down. There was an air conditioning unit on the ground that could have been used to reach the window.
Police were told that a man who lived on Main Street was someone who could be considered a suspect. He had just moved back into the residence and had been in the salon about two weeks prior. Officers found that the man has a history of thefts and is a suspect in another breaking and entering at a Main Street apartment as well.
Additional Incident -
On Sunday, Sept. 1, police were dispatched to CVS at the Woburn Mall for a report of a man who came to the business, went to the baby formula, took out a reusable shopping bag and allegedly stole six large cans of baby formula valued at $25 each.
The manager of the store recognized the man from similar incidents on July 22 and August 25.
A white Chevy Cavalier was identified as the getaway vehicle and a license was obtained from the August incident. The vehicle was driven by a white woman with blonde hair, and the car belongs to a woman in Methuen.
Methuen Police said they are familiar with the vehicle and identified a possible suspect. When Woburn Police viewed a photograph of the man, it matched the description given by the CVS employee.
