A 32-year-old man identified as AndrÈ Simpson of Spring Ground in Manchester who was imprisoned for two years ago for housebreaking and larceny has once again found himself in trouble with the law for a similar offence.
According to the Spaldings police, a report was received on Sunday, March 18, at about 2 p.m. that the house of a retired teacher at Glencoe Meadows in Spaldings was broken into.
The police went to the premises, and on arrival, they noticed that a window had been pried open. It is said that the police suspected that someone was still inside the house when they arrived.
While searching the house, the police reportedly heard strange sounds coming from the ceiling of a closet.
It is reported that the police instructed the person in the ceiling to come down. Following the instruction, a man cried out begging the police not to shoot him. He later came down.
He was found with an undetermined sum of money, also a security sensor which he removed from the window when he entered the house.
While the Police was in the house with the burglar, a large crowd converged on the scene and were all begging for Simpson's release so they could deliver their own justice.
However, Simpson was instead taken in custady for questioning.
He was therefore arrested and charged with housebreaking and larceny.
