Man charged with two burglaries in one day
A Quincy man was charged with burglaries in one day, after a homeowner allegedly found him sneaking around his house.
According to police, a Lurton Street resident said he was in his living room on Thursday shortly before noon, when he heard glass break in the kitchen. When the homeowner went to find out the source of the noise, he ran into the suspect lurking on the floor.
The homeowner said “Hey, what are you doing,” and the suspect fled, police said. The homeowner chased after the man as he ran toward High Street, but the suspect soon was out of sight.
The homeowner called police and a call went out to surrounding police officers to look for the suspect. A short time later, Braintree Police said they had detained a man fitting the description given by the victim.
A Quincy police dog also tracked the suspect’s scent to where Braintree Police had arrested the suspect.
Police searched the man, finding a prescription pill bottle for Ibuprofen in someone else’s name. The suspect claimed he had bought the pills from someone.
Upon investigation, police said they discovered the pills had been stolen from a Quincy residence on Nicholl Street broken into earlier that day.
Peter C. Bulman, 34, from Quincy was arrested and charged with breaking and entering in the daytime, breaking and entering in the daytime putting a person in fear, larceny from a building, larceny of a controlled substance, and destruction of property for breaking a window to gain entry to the Lurton Street house.
