Four guns stolen in Quincy
Quincy police are looking for a suspect who allegedly stole four guns and a credit card from an attorney’s office on Foster Street in Quincy sometime Sunday evening or Monday morning.

According to police, the attorney had his firearms locked up, but the thief found the key and procured the weapons. Two handguns, a rifle, and a shotgun were stolen.

The thief also took the victim’s credit card, police said. The card was used at Tedeschi’s at 230 Washington St. Monday morning at approximately 5 a.m. A man then used the card at the Quincy Center T.

Police are obtaining security feed from the MBTA, and have released tape that police say shows the man using the card at Tedeschi’s.

Anyone with information on the suspect is encouraged to contact Quincy Police.

Attempted car break-ins
An East Falmouth woman was arrested Tuesday morning after she allegedly tried to break in to several cars in the parking lot of Quincy Medical Center.

According to police, employees and hospital security saw the suspect trying to gain access to several vehicles.

When police arrived, they located the suspect between two cars.

Jennifer Reilly, 35, of East Falmouth was arrested and charged with three counts of attempt to commit a crime and for misleading a police investigation.

She had three outstanding warrants as well – two out of Barnstable District Court, and another out of Quincy District Court, police said.
