It's the barracks for alleged thieves on Peddocks
State Police report arresting two people who allegedly motor-boated over to a Harbor island to strip copper out of a building there.
State Police say troopers from the Marine Unit got a call Friday afternoon about somebody being on Peddocks Island vandalizing property. According to State Police, when the troopers landed, they found an empty motorboat and began looking around:
Before long, the troopers heard loud thuds coming from Building #10 on the island's parade grounds. As they approached the building, Troopers Nunes and Bulis heard the sounds of power tools and hammering coming from inside. Then they spotted a man in a second floor window and ordered him out of the building, along with anyone else who was inside.
Charles Engren, 42, and Patricia Berry, 35, both of Quincy, were arrested - and their nail hammers, sledgehammers, and two reciprocating saws confiscated - State Police say. They were shipped over to the Norwell barracks for booking on charges of breaking and entering in the daytime with intent to commit a felony, malicious destruction of property worth over $250, trespassing, and possession of burglarious tools.
