Police connected a man wearing a pair of flashy sneakers — black with a long white design on the sides — with a breaking and entering in Hingham. His notable sneakers were caught on the inside surveillance camera.
A 39-year-old Hull man is being held at the Plymouth County House of Correction after Hingham police connected him to a breaking and entering at the Super Petroleum station at the Rotary on Jan. 10 at midnight.
Dispatch received the alarm than night and when police arrived they found the front door had been smashed in. They contacted the manager, who said an undetermined amount of money had been taken from the register.
Detective Robert Mansfield conducted the investigation and reviewed the videotape.
On Feb. 1, a Hull Police officer was on routine patrol when his attention was drawn to a white man wearing flashy sneakers. There had been several “smash and grabs” in Hull where videotapes had also picked up on the sneakers. He stopped the man and identified him as Derrick D. Jones, 39. Mansfield went to Hull to interview the suspect and found that Jones was wearing the same clothing –- sneakers, Red Sox cap and dark-blue heavy winter coat -- as the man caught on the videotape during the Hingham burglary.
Hingham has charged Jones with breaking and entering in the nighttime with intent to commit a felony, larceny from a building, malicious destruction of property over $250 and larceny over $250.
