Arrests Made in 7-Town Burglary Spree

Authorities on Tuesday announced the arrests of two Natick men accused of a seven-town burglary spree over the last few months.

Sean Sullivan, 31, and Gregg Lamont, 48, were charged with a host of crimes. Police said the arrests were the result of a new mutual aid agreement.

Authorities said Sullivan and Lamont hit the following communities from Feb. 27 to April 2:

  • Lincoln
  • Needham
  • Sherborn
  • Wayland
  • Wellesley
  • Weston
  • Westwood
Police said on April 4, Sullivan and Lamont were pulled over in truck while driving through Middlesex County. Sullivan was charged with driving with a suspended license. Police said they found him in possession of a pry bar and a Westwood High School class ring that had been reported stolen.

After executing search warrants, police said they found a trove of jewelry at the suspects' homes.

Police credited a newly-signed  Inter-Agency Mutual Aid Agreement for aiding the investigation.

"The teamwork of police detectives was instrumental in bring closure to this case and returning stolen property to their rightful owners," said Natick Police Chief James Hicks in a statement. "Without Sherborn investigators talking to Lincoln, and Weston talking to Sudbury, and so on, these suspects might still be victimizing homeowners today."
