The first incident occurred on Willow Street in South Yarmouth on Friday, July 17, at at 9:27 a.m., which resulted in the arrest of 22-year-old Dylan James Coughlin of Harwich (pictured) for breaking into a home in that section of Bass River.

The second incident occurred on Raymond Avenue in South Yarmouth last Friday, July 24, at 12:39 p.m. This time two 15-year-old Yarmouth juvenile males were arrested for breaking into a home and stealing a bicycle.
