Two Men Arrested For Breaking Into A Vacant New Bedford Home
A vacant home on Adams Street in the North End was the sight of an attempted break in Monday morning.
Police say two men were caught trying to break into the home that had been boarded up with plywood. Officers Antonio Almeida and Steven Almeida responded to the break at about 12:10 a.m. Monday and found the suspects walking away from the property.
The suspects, Luis Riveira-Rodriguez, 25, of 24 Adams St., and Edgardo A. Badillo, 33, of 289 Coffin Ave., have been charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime with intent to commit a felony, possession of burglary tools, malicious destruction of property less than $250 (for damaging a lock box at the house) and larceny under $250.
Police say they made it through the plywood on the house, but not through the door behind the plywood.
One of the suspects, Riveira-Rodriguez, was found with a backpack that had a crowbar sticking out of it.
