Wayland woman caught breaking into ice cream plant
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Wayland woman wasn’t looking for a sweet treat when she broke into a closed ice cream factory over the weekend.
Police responding to an alarm at the idle Breyer’s Ice Cream plant in Framingham on Saturday morning say they found 34-year-old Jennifer Coppell hiding on the premises with a crowbar and bolt cutters.
The MetroWest Daily News (http://bit.ly/MY5SHN ) reports she was ordered held without bail on a probation violation at her arraignment Monday on charges of breaking and entering, vandalizing, possession of burglary tools and trespassing.
Coppell’s lawyer said her client was simply following a Framingham man who masterminded the break-in and remains at large.
Police did not say what the couple was after, but a building manager told authorities that copper has been stolen in previous break-ins.
