This September, there were several reports of burglaries from homes and vehicles in town. Last night, Southborough Wicked Local reported that a homeless man from the Worcester area has been charged with the thefts.

SWL writes that a Westborough Police investigation led to the charges. The suspect, Stephen Davidson, was identified by a witness and confessed to the crimes.

Police said Davidson admitted to stealing from many unlocked cars, breaking into an Oak Hill Road home, and stealing copper pipes from the historic Garfield House on Main Street.

Davidson now faces 12 counts of breaking and entering into cars, 12 counts of larceny under $250, one count of larceny over $250 and one count of breaking and entering in the nighttime. Police issued the warrant, but Davidson had not yet been arrested at press time.

Southborough police were investigating multiple thefts from unlocked cars last month. Most of the thefts were near Oak Hill Road and Cherry Street. Police said they think [Davidson] is the only suspect.

The article also revealed that Davidson previously lived in Southborough for a week.
