Police: Major haul of stolen property recovered from Pittsfield residence

Tuesday April 9, 2013

PITTSFIELD -- Authorities said they recovered several thousand dollars worth of allegedly stolen property from a city residence Tuesday afternoon.

At about 2:45 p.m., a search warrant was executed at 148 Onota St., a multi-family unit. Troopers from the state police barracks in Lee and Cheshire; the Massachusetts Crime Scene Service Section; detectives assistant to the Berkshire District Attorney; and police officers from Lanesborough and Pittsfield responded, State Police Sgt. George Hamilton said.

He said the tenants, whose names were not available, were home when the officials arrived, but no arrests were made.

"It's an ongoing investigation," Hamilton said. "It's part of a joint investigation involving multiple law-enforcement agencies."

A dispatcher with the state police barracks in Cheshire said the property was possibly connected to property stolen in Becket.

The search warrant was executed at 2:45 p.m. and concluded around 5 p.m. During that time, state and local law enforcement officials carried drug paraphernalia, car wheels, mattresses, a flat-screen TV, a large wooden trunk and other items in boxes out of the residence, then loaded them into the back of a moving van.
