So, on Saturday I wrote an entry about two guys from New Hampshire who were accused of leading Billerica Police on a short chase before crashing a stolen Chevy Impala, fleeing on foot and getting captured.
The two guys arrested in that incident, Michael Meucci, 29, of Salem, N.H., and Daniel Desjardins, 27, of Manchester, N.H., are pictured below.
Well, today I heard from Tewksbury Police that following the arrest of Meucci and Desjardins on Saturday, Tewksbury and Billerica Police worked together to get a warrant for room 314 at the Extended Stay America Hotel, 1910 Andover St., Tewksbury on Monday.
Inside the room, where Meucci and Desjardins were said to have been staying for quite a while, police found a jackpot of allegedly stolen items, which are pictured throughout the rest of this entry.
Tewksbury Police have already linked some of the stolen jewelry and electronics to a house break at 158 Astle St., in Tewksbury, that occurred on Friday.
Meucci and Desjardins have been charged with receiving stolen property for that, and Tewksbury Police are investigating to determine if they’re responsible for the actual house break as well.
Detective Lt. Ryan Columbus told me Groton, Haverhill and Westford Police have also identified items that were taken during incidents in their towns. More charges will be coming.
“There are going to be numerous counts from numerous jurisdictions,” said Tewksbury Police Chief Timothy Sheehan.
Police departments from around the region are now going to be checking out the items found in this room to see if they’ve been reported stolen.
Meucci and Desjardins have been held since Saturday, since they’re fugitives from New Hampshire, where both had warrants. That’s on top of the charges they were already facing in Billerica.
If you see that yellow Dyson vacuum in the background of this last picture, I figured it was just a Tewksbury Police vacuum that no one moved before taking the picture.
I was wrong. It too was reported stolen. No word yet on kitchen sinks.
Tewksbury Police are still asking residents who spot suspicious activity to call them at 978.851.7373. If you want to remain anonymous, call 978.851.0175, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
