Police Make Arrests Relating to Vandalism of Vehicles on Campus

March 17th, 2004 by Adam

After a string of vehicle break ins over the last three weeks, Plymouth State University Police have arrested Joshua Zarnowski, 20 of Campton, and charged him with criminal mischief for breaking into vehicles in the area of student apartments on the night of March 12. Jacob Vandeinse, 20 of Thornton, has also been arrested. As the driver of the get-away car, he is being charged with conspiracy.

Neither Vandeinse or Zarnowski are PSU students, but their actions were witnessed by a student, whose vehicle had been previously vandalized, and contacted University Police. University Police Officers Barney, Trott and Sgt. Chierichetti, along with Plymouth Police Officer Cormier, responded to the call. Vandeinse and Zarnowski attempted to flee but were apprehended. At the time, Zarnowski was charged with an alcohol offense and Vandeinse was released at the scene.

“It was after careful review of the facts and a positive identification by the witness that warrants were drawn up for their arrest,” states University Lt. Aaron Comeau. “We were able to apprehend these two so quickly thanks to the student’s immediate call to University Police and providing a detailed description of the suspect and vehicle.” Comeau added both face a year in jail and several thousand dollars in fines.
