Real Life Somerville Police Stories: Dannielle WALSH (B&E MV Nighttime Felony)

On January 16, 2019, I, Officer Kim, was working routine patrol in marked police cruiser West 7. At approximately 8:45am, XXXX entered the West Sub-station and reported that his motor vehicle had been broken into the night prior.
XXXX stated that he parked his vehicle in front of his house, located at 8X Electric Avenue, at 6:00 p.m. the prior night. At 7:45 a.m. this morning he entered his car and noticed it had been rummaged through. XXXX reported missing: 1 pair of women’s sunglasses; a $20.00 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card; and a BJ’s Wholesale Club ID card. XXXX then gave me a Black LG cell phone in a Red leather case, and stated that he had found it in his car this morning and believes it belongs to whoever broke into his car. He then stated that he believes the perpetrator to be Danielle Walsh, a party well known to me from past incidents. Walsh was seen in the area this morning, by officer O’Meara on detail, and a WMS queried was performed with negative results. I advised XXXX that I would file a police report. The cell phone was logged into evidence.
At approximately 10:00 a.m. I spoke with Officer O’meara at the West Sub-station. He informed me that earlier in the morning, while on detail on Electric Avenue, he observed Walsh walking up and down the street looking into and checking motor vehicle door handles. When he approached Walsh to inquire, she stated that she “was looking for her cell phone, which was lost last night.” Walsh further stated that her cell phone was wrapped in a Pink leather case.
Officer Anderson and I made our way to Walsh’s residence located at 55 Ossipee Road. I rang the doorbell and Walsh opened the door. I asked if she had lost her cell phone and she answered yes. Walsh stated that she had lost her cell phone last night around 3:00 a.m. She also stated that she was out drinking alcohol, became intoxicated then walked to her boyfriend’s house around 3:00 a.m. I handed her the cell phone which was turned in to police earlier, and asked if she could identified it as her property. She identified the cell phone as her property. I further asked her to use her personal code to unlock the cell phone to confirm it was in fact her property; and she did so. At that point in time, I placed Walsh under arrest an informed her of the charges and her Miranda rights, which I read from a card.
Walsh was transported to the station by Unit 200: Officer Rivera to be processed for Court by Lieutenant W. Rymil. Based on the above facts and circumstances Walsh is being charged with:

M.G.L S266/16D : Breaking and entering into a motor vehicle during the nighttime with intent to commit a felony.
