On November 22, 2010 at approximately 10: 41 AM Granby Police were dispatched to a breaking and entering that just occurred at a residence on East State Street. The caller stated that a suspect had just sped from the area in a white convertible headed southbound on Route 202. Officers responded to speak with the caller and retrieved a better description of the suspect, the vehicle and the items that had been stolen from the residence. Within minutes of the initial call, officers located a vehicle and an operator who matched the description. The vehicle was initially located two miles from the residence and headed in the same direction as the witness had stated. The witness was able to identify the suspect, 51 year old Edward Eaton from 133 Jabish Street in Belchertown, as the party he saw at the residence. Officers searched the vehicle that Eaton was driving and located several items (money and jewelry) that were stolen from the residence. The search of the vehicle also revealed a guitar that was stolen from a house break in Belchertown. Mr. Eaton was placed under arrest and transported to the police station for processing. He is charged with breaking and entering in the day time with the intent to commit a felony, larceny of property valued over $250 and receiving stolen property over $250. Mr. Eaton was transported to the Eastern Hampshire District Court for arraignment.
Sergeant Mark Smith, Sergeant Kevin O’Grady, Patrolman Jason Richard and Patrolman James White were all involved in the investigation.
