Man accused of B&E, painting dog, crashing car in Oak Bluffs

reganfelixOAK BLUFFS – Oak Bluffs Police report that on Saturday at approximately 2:30 p.m. Oak Bluffs police officers were dispatched to Firehouse Lane for a report of a stolen motor vehicle that crashed at the end of the road with the suspect fleeing from the scene on foot. The vehicle was stolen from the Upper Douglas Lane area. Officers responded to this location and initiated an investigation.

Around 5 to 10 minutes later, officers were dispatched to a residence on Pinewood Lane for a report of a past breaking & entering. Officers responded and met with the victim who stated they arrived home and found a ground-level window forced in. Items were reported stolen and the victim’s dog had been painted with purple paint.

Officers investigating the house break spoke to a neighbor who reported a man knocked on their door and asked for a man who didn’t reside at the residence. The neighbor provided a description of the man to investigating officers and noted he looked disheveled.

Upon receiving this description, officers deemed Felix Reagan a suspect in both incidents. Reagan was arrested by the Oak Bluffs Police on June 3rd on the charges of breaking & entering in the daytime with the intent to commit a felony, vandalism and minor in possession of alcohol after an investigation into a breaking & entering of a residence on Lagoon Road while the homeowner was at work.

While officers were searching the area for Reagan, a resident of Webaqua Road called and reported a male was looking into the window of their home. Officers then began a search of the neighborhood. A Massachusetts State Police Trooper who was assisting OBPD located Reagan in the area of Webaqua Road and took him into custody. A search of Reagan’s person revealed prescription pills, a driver’s license and credit cards that were stolen from the victim of the Pinewood Lane house break-in. Reagan also had purple paint on his pants which was consistent with the paint that was found on the dog from the Pinewood Lane break-in.

During the investigation, officers received two additional reports of break-ins of residences on Webaqua Road.

Reagan was transported to the Oak Bluffs Police station for questioning. While in the police cruiser Reagan attempted to kick out the windows and kicked an Oak Bluffs Officer on two occasions. Reagan was subsequently placed under arrest for the following:

Breaking & entering in the daytime with the intent to commit a felony

  • Larceny of a motor vehicle
  • Destruction of property
  • Cruelty to animals
  • Possession of a Class A substance
  • Possession of a Class E substance
  • Assault & battery on a police officer (2 counts)

These incidents remain under investigation and more charges may be filed.
