1 min read

LUDLOW — Four people, including two teenagers, were arrested Tuesday evening after a string of package thefts from homes and a stolen vehicle were linked to their activities, according to Ludlow police.

Ludlow Police Chief Daniel Valadas reported that the initial complaint came Monday when a resident provided a photo of a 2010 Honda Odyssey suspected in the theft of a package from their home.

The investigation continued the next day when, at 5:09 p.m., another report of stolen packages came in.

Police spotted the suspect vehicle around 8:09 p.m. near East Street and Cedar Street.

Upon arrival at Cedar Street, officers saw a passenger exit the vehicle, run onto a property, and return to the car.

A traffic stop led to the detention of all four occupants as a package with an address from the earlier report was visible inside the vehicle.

A search revealed over 20 items presumed stolen and an airsoft pistol.

The vehicle was also reported stolen from Holyoke.

The suspects arrested are J’Annie Carrucini, 18, of Springfield, and Emmanuel Diaz, 19, of Three Rivers, facing multiple charges including felony breaking and entering and receiving a stolen motor vehicle.

Two minors from Three Rivers, aged 16 and 13, were also charged with receiving stolen property over $1,200.

Chief Valadas praised the work of his officers and highlighted the role of license plate readers in identifying the stolen vehicle.

Efforts will be made to return the stolen items to their rightful owners before Christmas.

Carrucini and Diaz were arraigned in Palmer District Court Wednesday morning, with bail set at $10,000 each.

The teenagers are due in court on Jan. 12.
