A Boston man was arrested on Cape Cod on charges that he broke into a restaurant early Friday and then made a false 911 call hoping to “lure officers away” as they searched for him, police said.
Kurry Sutton, 38, was arrested and accused of breaking into Friendly’s Restaurant on Iyannough Road in Hyannis, Barnstable police said in a statement.
Officers responded to an alarm that went off at the restaurant at 2:23 a.m. K-9 units helped locate Sutton, who was hiding in some bushes, police said.
During the search, police received a 911 call for a person shot in the area of Route 28 in Hyannis. Police said that Sutton made the call in an attempt to distract the officers searching for him.
Sutton faces numerous charges, including breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony, unarmed robbery, larceny under $250, and misleading a police officer.
Officers found two other buildings in the area that had been broken into. They discovered that the back door to an apartment on Iyannough Road had been forced open while the residents were sleeping. The residents did not know anyone had entered, police said.
Another building on the street had been entered through a second-story office window, police said.
