SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – What started as a search for a suspect in an unarmed robbery on Boston Road, ended with the arrest of a man accused of breaking into a home on Waterford Circle, Friday night.

Springfield Police Lt. Mark Rolland told 22News the call came in as an unarmed robbery at Falcetti Music around 8:40 p.m. Friday; “They stole two high end guitars worth about $2,000.”

Lt. Rolland said they tracked two suspects with police dogs, and found the guitars in some woods off Kent Road, near the Eastfield Mall. Police arrested a man who had broken into a home on Waterford Circle. He said, “At first the man in the house said he lived there, but when police called the owner, they found out that was not true.”

Lt. Rolland said the larceny at Falcetti’s occurred when one suspect distracted the clerk, while the other suspect stole the two guitars. He said the suspect arrested at Waterford Circle was identified by the victim.

One suspect is charged with Larceny and Breaking and entering. A second suspect is still on the loose.
