Police Log: Sleepy Trespasser Arrested
The following information was supplied by the Belmont Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
Not who he said he was
Aug. 17 – Just after noon, a Woodbine Road resident told police that a person had called his house more than once identifying himself as a federal agent. The resident looked up on the web where the calls were coming from and discovered the caller was not a federal worker.
Aug. 18 – At 8:29 p.m., a Blanchaud Road resident called the police after someone or some people had egged his home. The resident said he didn't want to file a formal report, just for the police to keep an eye on the area.
Sleepy ex behind bars
Aug. 19 – At 6:06 a.m., a call came into the police station of a breaking and entering in progress on Burnham Street. When officers arrived, they could hear yelling coming from the inside of an apartment. At the scene, they found a Belmont resident who told them her ex-boyfriend – who no longer lives at the address – had broken into the apartment while she was sleeping by climbing onto the balcony, pushing in an air conditioner and then crawling in. Once inside, the young man stated shouting, moving furniture around and destroying fish tanks. When officers questioned the man, he told them that he had just woke up. "I don't know why you are here," he told officers. He soon found out why they were there: to arrest him – Michael Boutin, 26, of 43 Burnham St., – for breaking and entering, felony and defacing property.
Out on his own
Aug. 19 – At 7:59 a.m., police discovered a three-year-old little boy playing by his lonesome on Pearson Road. When the officer asked where he lived, the boy pointed to a house on the street. But police could not initially raise anyone inside. Soon the boy's mother arrived who said the boy was "playing outside."
