Large-capacity rifle stolen – recovered

Billerica Police say the man pictured in this entry, James Robinson, 21, of Billerica, stole a large capacity rifle from a unit in the Kenmar Drive Apartments during a burglary today about 1:30 p.m.

Police were called to the area about 1:30 p.m., and Officer Scott Parker saw a man walking away from the area with what appeared to be a firearm, according to police.

That man fled at the sight of police.

Police setup a perimeter around the area, which includes a large wooded area and Innis Drive,  and arrested Robinson after a brief physical struggle about 30 minutes later.

After the arrest, police say they found a large capacity rifle and ammunition in the woods nearby.

Robinson was charged with breaking and entering daytime, larceny of a firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm, resisting arrest, and possession of burglary tools.

Robinson is being held without bail pending his arraignment on Thursday.
