Gerald Taddeo pleads not guilty to larceny, breaking and entering
Police in Chelmsford say they just had to follow the footprints to find a break-in suspect.
The Lowell Sun reports that Gerald Taddeo, 20, of Chelmsford, has pleaded not guilty to larceny over $250 and breaking and entering a building during the daytime. Police say he broke into a next-door neighbor’s home on Biscayne Drive on March 28 and stole $1,100 from a dresser and a safe containing guns and ammunition, according to The Sun.
A witness out running told police that she saw someone walking out of the victim’s backyard and toward Taddeo’s house, The Sun stated.
When police investigated, they just had to follow the size 12 1/2 boot prints.
“The footprints went from Taddeo’s backyard to the back door of the (victim’s) house,” police wrote, according to The Sun.
Police told The Sun that they found the stolen firearms in Taddeo’s house. A friend also told police that Taddeo asked him to keep a lookout in exchange for cigarettes and a tank of gas.
