On Thursday afternoon, the Southborough Police Department announced that they are pressing charges against an alleged burglar of a Southborough home.
The Facebook post states that a Pine Hill Road was broken into last week. The SPD tracked down all of the valuable stolen items, and charged a suspect.
Here’s the announcement from Facebook giving credit to the investigating officer and detective for their work:
