Suspect arrested in Wareham break ins

WAREHAM – Wareham Police report that on Saturday at about 7:50 PM, Officers James White and Michael Phinney responded to Ryder Street for a reported breaking and entering in progress. Upon the arrival of officers, neighbors reported that they had observed a male break into a shed and walk out carrying a bag, but had fled. The neighbors were able to give a good physical description of the suspect. As the officers were checking the area, they heard a female scream that a male was in her house which was adjacent to the location of the original break. Officers White and Phinney quickly determined the suspect had gone to the basement of this house and had barricaded himself in a room. Officer White went to the basement, kicked open the door, and the male attempted to flee but was ordered to the ground by Officer Phinney. The suspect, Kealynd Schalet, 23, of Roslindale, was now placed under arrest.

After an on scene investigation it was determined that Schalet, had stolen items from a nearby shed before breaking into the occupied residence, in an apparent attempt to elude the officers. Schalet was transported to Wareham Police headquarters for processing and is expected to appear in Wareham District Court on Monday.

Acting Police Chief John Walcek praised the cooperation and alertness of neighbors that assisted in a successful conclusion to this incident, as well as the quick action of responding officers resulting in an arrest with no injuries. The investigation is ongoing as to why this male came to this neighborhood in the first place.

2. Larceny from a Building
