A JUVENILE MALE, AGE 16, OF RANDOLPH and a JUVENILE MALE, AGE 17, OF DEDHAM were each charged with Receiving Stolen Property. The DEDHAM JUVENILE was also allegedly wanted on two active arrest warrants from other communities.

The two juveniles were released into the custody of their parents/guardians. They are expected to be arraigned at Quincy Juvenile Court on a later date. Their identities will not be released due to their age.

At approximately 10 a.m., Holbrook Police responded to the area of 300 South Franklin St. for a report of a single-vehicle crash. Upon arrival, officers located a Toyota Camry that had crashed into a brick wall outside a home that is under construction next to St John’s Episcopal Church.

Prior to officers’ arrival, the occupants of the vehicle had allegedly fled the scene on foot in the direction of Longmeadow Drive.

Responding officers immediately set up a perimeter and began to search the area for the suspects with assistance from Massachusetts State Police and the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department. Holbrook K-9 Handler Casey Surprenant and K-9 Jan also assisted with the search.

Police quickly located the two juvenile suspects near an apartment complex on Longmeadow Drive. They were subsequently placed under arrest without further incident and transported to the Holbrook Police Department for booking.

Police continued their search in the woods near Longmeadow Drive and located a third suspect a short time later. The suspect, identified as BERNARD, was also placed under arrest without further incident and transported to the station for booking. No injuries were reported.

While officers were investigating the crash, it was determined that the Toyota Camry involved in the crash was allegedly the same vehicle that officers attempted to conduct a motor vehicle stop on earlier in the morning. While attempting to conduct the vehicle stop, a Holbrook Police Officer discovered that the vehicle had recently been reported stolen out of Cambridge. The officer had briefly followed the vehicle until abandoning the pursuit when they lost sight of the vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle, police also found several stolen packages in the trunk. Holbrook Police will work to return the packages to the intended recipients.

These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
