WILMINGTON, MA — On Thursday morning (March 22) at approximately 5am, officers from the Wilmington Police Department responded to Jimmy’s Garage (945 Main Street, Wilmington) for a reported burglar alarm.
Officers quickly determined the building had been burglarized and were able to quickly identify a general description of the vehicle involved. A white GMC pickup was used to smash through the front of the store.
A short time later, Andover Police responded to a Motor Vehicle Crash into a house on School Street in Andover. The operator of the vehicle fled the scene. The vehicle involved was identified by officers as the vehicle involved in the burglary at Jimmy’s Garage.
While investigating the scene in Andover, Andover and Wilmington officers were notified that Tewksbury Police had a break in at a service station in their town. Evidence recovered at the scene of the Andover crash led investigators to suspect all three incidents were related.
Officers from Wilmington, Tewksbury, Andover, Woburn, Boston and Massachusetts State Police are working together to identify the suspect.
Below is a still photo of the suspect obtained from surveillance footage at Jimmy’s Garage.
Anyone with any information on the suspect or these incidents are urged to call the Wilmington Police Department at 978-658-5071 or your local law enforcement agency.
