Belchertown man arrested in New Salem break-ins
NEW SALEM — After a month of investigation, the New Salem Police Department has filed charges against Belchertown resident Tyrone G. Ulmer Jr., 43, for allegedly breaking into two homes.
On July 29, Lt. Marcy Helems and Detective John Bonafini responded to reports of break-ins at homes on North Main Street and Crowl Road, according to a press release from the department.
Working together with Officer Adam Sokoloski of the Deerfield Police Department, who had encountered similar break-ins, the officers identified a number of aspects in the cases that led them to Ulmer as the primary suspect.
More than $3,000 worth of items stolen in the break-ins were recovered from pawn shops and jewelry stores in Springfield, where they had been sold.
Ulmer was already in custody on unrelated charges, but has now also been charged with two felony counts of breaking and entering during the daytime, two counts of larceny, and larceny of a credit card.
