An IT worker at a Smith & Nephew (NYSE:SNN) facility in North Attleboro, Mass. has aided officials in arresting a man accused of breaking into six businesses in the area and stealing laptops and other items, according to a report from the Mansfield News.
The suspect, 56-year-old Reginald Shepard, allegedly began breaking into businesses in the Mansfield industrial park last August, with the first theft reported as having occurred at Alpha Analytical Labs on August 31. Three more break-ins were reported to have occurred on November 12, according to the report.
Shepard and his vehicle were identified using surveillance video, “particularly with the help and footage from an information technology employee at Smith & Nephew,” according to the Mansfield News report.
Last December, Shepard was arrested on traffic-related violations, and admitted to the larcenies after being questioned, according to the report.
