Winthrop Police this week released a wanted poster featuring the photograph of a Winthrop man, who is now wanted in connection with a recent rash of daytime break-ins in the Court Road area.
According to Winthrop Police Chief Terence Delehanty, police are looking for Joseph Paci, 36, of 35 Court Road who is also known to frequent 2 Nancia Street, Apartment 7 in Winthrop.
“Thanks to some physical evidence recovered at the scenes and some good police work, we are now searching for this suspect – Joseph Paci – in connection with at least two of the break-ins,” said Chief Delehanty. “This is still an active investigation, so we can not divulge details of the case, but we have obtained a warrant for his arrest from East Boston District Court.
Anyone with information regarding Joseph Paci or his potential whereabouts is encouraged to contact Winthrop Police at 617-846-1212 or the Boston Regional Intelligence Center (BRIC) at 617-343-4328.
Last week, Chief Delehanty warned residents to make sure that their homes were locked and secured before leaving, as a rash on break-ins had occurred when the suspect had gained entry through unlocked doors.
“This is just a reminder for people that they really should make sure their homes are locked, when they are away,” said Delehanty. “Also, if anyone sees suspicious activity, someone standing on a neighbor’s porch that doesn’t belong there, for instance, please call 911 and alert the police.”
Despite the break in the case that has led police to search for Paci, and ask for the public’s help in apprehending him, Chief Delehanty stressed that homeowners and residents must remain vigilant and ensure their homes and personal property are safe before leaving for the day.
