Police in Greenfield have arrested a teen for allegedly breaking into a home overnight.
Greenfield Police say that around 2 a.m. Friday, police were called to a home on Wells Street after a report came in of a noise that sounded like a bulkhead opening.
When officers arrived, they reportedly found the bulkhead open, but no suspects were located following a search of the home.
A short time later, another report came from a nearby home that a green pickup truck pulled into the driveway and someone had tried to get into the home from the bulkhead. That truck then sped off, but not before damaging the lawn.
Investigators were able to locate a green pickup truck that allegedly belonged to 19-year-old Benjamin Stennes of Bernardston, and stolen property was reportedly found in the back of the truck.
Stennes was subsequently arrested on charges of malicious destruction of property, larceny of property under $250, and breaking and entering into a building at night with felonious intent.
Police note that they have received several reports of other homes that may have been broken into. However, it's not yet known if those cases are related.
If you're a resident and believe your home was entered, or your property was damaged, you are urged to call Greenfield Police at (413) 773-5411.
