Men charged with holiday gift thefts

Wareham police said that on Dec. 18 at approximately 10:30 a.m., officers responded to a report of two suspicious men in a silver Volkswagen Jetta who were seen removing envelopes that had been attached to trash barrels in the area of Swifts Beach Road. The envelopes contained gift cards and tips intended for trash removal employees. Police said officers located the Jetta on Swifts Beach Road and spoke with 32-year-old Albert Crepeau and 31-year-old Joshua Hands, both residents of Fall River. During their investigation, police said, Crepeau and Hands admitted they had taken the envelopes, and officers found ripped envelopes, cash, and gift cards in their vehicle. Crepeau and Hands were arrested and charged with seven counts of larceny under $250. Police Chief Richard Stanley commended the actions of the concerned citizen who made the initial call to police about the suspicious activity. Hands and Crepeau pleaded not guilty to the charges and their case has been continued to Feb. 5, according to the Wareham District Court clerk’s office.
