BERLIN — A Whaleyville man was charged last week with numerous counts of rogue and vagabond and theft after a months-long investigation into a series of vehicle break-ins in the Berlin area.
During the months of October and November, the Berlin Police Department investigated numerous vehicle break-ins in the community. The Berlin Police Department enlisted the assistance of the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation (WCBI).
Last week, the investigation led to the arrest of Joseph Brian Moseley, 44, of Whaleyville, who was connected to the series of break-ins. Moseley was arrested by the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office last Thursday. He has been charged with eight counts of rogue and vagabond, theft from $100 to $1,500, theft scheme from $100 to $1,500 and malicious destruction of property.
Moseley was held initially on a $25,000 bond, but was later released after posting the bond. His trial has been set for Jan. 22.
