Charges of Receiving Stolen Property Over $250, Larceny Under $250 against local high school student to be Dismissed
Waltham District Court: A Waltham, Massachusetts police detective was assigned to monitor second hand estate sales in the city. While at local pawn shop he became suspicious that an eighteen year old high school student from a neighboring town had sold some rather expensive jewelry to the pawn shop owner. The detective contacted the defendant's town police department and learned that one of the defendant's neighbors' home had been broken into and her jewelry had been stolen. The store owner identified a photograph of the defendant as the person who sold him the stolen jewelry. Charges of Receiving Stolen Property Over $250 and Larceny Under $250 were filed against the defendant. Today, Attorney Stephen Neyman was able to get the charges continued without a finding. The defendant will have no criminal record if he is able to remain free of criminal problems for the next year.
