Police arrest man with alleged 'criminal checklist'
WEYMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) -- Police arrested a Weymouth man who allegedly had a “criminal checklist.”
The alleged checklist included a random list of daily goals like finding drugs breaking into a home; even doing something nice.
Weymouth police say he's a suspect in several other crimes in the area. Evan Dorsey, 25, of North Weymouth was arrested over the weekend and charged with breaking and entering, stealing drugs, and carrying a dangerous weapon - among other crimes.
The alleged crimes happened in the area of Blackstone and Sagamore roads in North Weymouth.
Police say Dorsey was carrying a black jack, also known as a night stick, when he was caught trying to break into a home. Witnesses say he was trying to get into other homes on the block.
“It’s a very quiet neighborhood. Yes, [I’m very surprised] I’ve been here since December and I haven’t heard anything like that before,” one neighbor said.
Police say Dorsey had insulin on him -- which he stole out of a UPS package, along with jewelry and tools used to pry open doors.
When police arrested Dorsey, they say he had a checklist on him of things he wanted to do for the day. One checklist included finding crystal meth, getting a gold watch, committing a break-in, robbing a drug dealer, and committing a random act of kindness.
Dorsey's uncle, who didn't want to show his face on camera, described why he thinks Dorsey was allegedly up to no good.
“It’s madness. The heroin addiction around here. Yes [he’s having problems with drugs,” Dorsey’s uncle said.
It is believed the suspect stole the jewelry police found on him from his own mother.
