Police: Man wore GPS device during Randolph house break, possibly others


RANDOLPH, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A 37-year-old man with one hundred arraignments on his record was arrested on a whole new slew of house breaking charges, crimes he allegedly committed while wearing a GPS monitoring device.

Jamie Johnson, most recently of Holbrook, was arrested at a house break on Waldo Street in Randolph on Sept. 2. A neighbor had called cops to report the incident, and responding officers caught him in the act.

Police said Johnson was wearing a GPS monitoring device at the time of his arrest. Because of the device, authorities have reason to believe Johnson may be responsible for other house breaks in Sharon, Dedham, Norwood, Milton, Holbrook, and other communities.

Police said some of the stolen goods were recovered from a storage unit in Milton. Inside the unit, police found costume jewelry, a Boston Red Sox commemorative medallion set, coins, stamps, watches, iPods, phones, and even Girl Scout cookie money.

Authorities will attempt to get the recovered items back to their rightful owners.

Anyone with information or who may have recognized some of the recovered items is asked to contact the Randolph Police Dept. at 781-963-1212.
