Concord police charge man with daytime Warren Street burglary
The Concord police have arrested a man they believe forced his way into a Warren Street home last week. And officials say they haven’t ruled out the possibility that he may also be responsible for four other daytime burglaries at nearby homes in the past month.
Michael Maynard, 49, was arrested Monday and has been charged with breaking into the Warren Street residence on Dec. 28. The police said Maynard shattered a window and entered through the home’s front door sometime between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. They’ve accused him of taking jewelry and cash.
The break-in shares similarities with four other burglaries in the past month, according to Concord police Lt. Tim O’Malley. He said the homes were all broken into by forced entry during the daytime when the residents weren’t home. The burglar took jewelry and cash from several homes, the police said. And in all of the cases except the Warren Street burglary, the residents were between 65 and 70 years old, O’Malley said.
O’Malley said the other burglaries are still under investigation, adding that the police haven’t ruled out other individuals being involved either in connection to Maynard or independently.
The police said the similar break-ins took place Dec. 3 on South Spring Street, Dec. 22 on North Spring Street and Dec. 27 on Lincoln and Rumford streets.
Maynard has been charged with a felony of burglary and also two counts of breach of bail conditions. O’Malley said that at the time of his arrest Maynard was out on bail after being charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct stemming from a Dec. 6 incident at Walmart on Loudon Road.
