You know those Spark Energy workers that walk around the neighborhood, knocking on doors asking to see your Nstar bill because they can give you better deal? And when you see them you think, “This seems sort of suspicious.” Well, two of those “workers” broke into someone’s home in Hyde Park so your suspicions were right!
See BPD report below:
At about 2:10 PM on Monday, December 17, 2018, officers assigned to District E-18 (Hyde Park) responded to a radio call for a breaking and entering at a residence in the area of Summit Street in Hyde Park. On arrival officers located two males matching the description of the suspects who had just broken into a residence in the area. Officers spoke to the victim who stated he had arrived home and observed the two male suspects approach his front door and ring the bell. The victim, who remained inside his motor vehicle, stated the suspects did not get an answer at the front door so they moved to the side door of the residence, again ringing the bell and knocking on the door.
The victim stated he observed the suspects gain entry into his enclosed sunroom through the side door. The victim stated at this time, he exited his vehicle and drew the attention of the suspects. The suspects exited the victim’s residence and immediately requested the victim’s energy bill information and his account number. The victim stated while the suspects were speaking to him, he observed his garage door to be partially open as well. The suspects eventually left the victim’s residence and proceeded to other residences in the area before police stopped them. The suspects stated they were both employees of “Spark Energy.” Both males were taken into custody.
Officers arrested Andre Williams, 21-years-old, of Hyde Park and Ryan Williams, 49-years-old of Dorchester. Both males are charged with Breaking and Entering of a Dwelling during the Daytime and are expected to be arraigned in West Roxbury District Court.
Also according to this reddit post, the same shenanigans were going on over the weekend too.
