N. Attleboro Man Arrested in Larceny from Rite Aid

The following is a statement from the Norwood Police Department:

The Norwood Police Department arrested and charged 32-year-old Jeremy M. Mishk of 25 Broad Street Apt. 2, North Attleboro with two counts of breaking into a depository and larceny from a building.

The report was for a past break-in to employee’s lockers. Statements from employees indicated that a white male asked to use the restroom. The suspect was directed to a secure area of the store. Once allowed access to the restroom it also allowed him access to an area for employees only. Security video shows the suspect entering the secure area, bypass the restroom and walk into the employee area. Several minutes later he is seen walking away from this area and leaves the store. A short time after the suspect had left, an employee discovered that some of the employee lockers had been forced open and personal belongings stolen.

Photos of the suspect were distributed by Rite-Aid. One was seen by an anonymous tipster who alerted Detective Paul Ryan with a name of a suspect. Through witness statements and new information provided, Detective Ryan was able to request and be granted an arrest warrant on Mishk.

On Monday evening North Attleboro Police arrested Mishk and was subsequently returned him to Norwood Police Headquarters for booking.
