Security guard charged in crime spree
WESTWOOD, Mass. (AP) — A security guard at an apartment complex for retirees in Westwood has been charged with stealing from residents.
Police say tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of jewelry and other valuables was stolen from the homes of Fox Hill Village residents while they were either on vacation or away for extended periods of time going back to October.
Police say there were never any forced entries and no fingerprints were ever left behind.
After installing hidden cameras, authorities caught images of a man wearing latex gloves in an apartment without permission of the resident. Police arrested 60-year-old Frank Tarr, of Middleborough, a security guard at the complex.
He was released on $500 bail after pleading not guilty to larceny charges. Tarr could not be reached.
