Every single crime in milford ends with police could not find suspect. did they ever find the person who broke into the laundrymat or how about the one that stabbed someone near Tedeschi?

Milford Police officers chased a suspect from a B&E at Pete's Market and arrested him in Hopkinton after he crashed his step-mothers car. A 20 year old male from Hopkinton was charged with the breaking and entering's into businesses and vehicles in Milford; for B&E into businesses in Framingham, Ashland and Holliston; for B&E into a home in Natick and for stealing a car in Hopkinton.

Thank you, Chief O'Loughlin, for clarifying and providing the info that is known so far. That clears up questions in the minds of many and perhaps some who are so critical, now will be less so. Thank you to the officers who work on these cases-it is not always an easy job!

Thanks, Chief O'Loughlin. It's good to know that there was a satisfactory ending to this story.

Chief, I didn't think the laundry mat robbery or the stabbing mentioned by Amanda was solved, different crime from the other robberies which led to the Hopkinton chase. Either way, police can't be everywhere...look at all the nonsense calls they are tasked with in the police blotter and we should trust that allot of investigations are going on behind the scenes...just curious though, how many detective class officers are part of the MFD? Do we need more? Do we need a "major case squad" based on the growing number of serious crimes in Milford? I'd like to see the police get the help and support they need.
