Multi-Agency Investigation and Arrests
The Winchester Police Department, along with Medford, Arlington, Revere, Saugus, Danvers, Malden, Melrose, Winthrop, Chelsea, Everett and Woburn; have been investigating several men from Revere and Saugus for house breaks throughout the area. Investigators from those communities have worked together over the last several weeks, resulting in the arrest of Eric Cuppernell and Michael Sullivan Jr. of Saugus as well as James Marino and Michael Brancato of Medford. The arrests were related to this investigation and additional charges are pending as the investigation continues.
Warrants were executed at a residence in Saugus and at a hotel on Route 1 where dozens of stolen property was recovered. That property is in the process of being inventoried and identified with hope it can be returned to its owners.
The individuals involved were responsible for numerous breaks throughout the area and were highly organized using different vehicles, police scanners, lookouts and communication as part of their operation. As the investigation continues, the involved agencies are confident similar cases will be solved as more information is distributed. Cases of Breaking and Entering are common but extremely difficult to investigate and prosecute. The collaboration between agencies in this investigation has been invaluable and will likely continue.
