North Adams Police: Christmas Ornaments Being Stolen
Staff Reports On: 03:29PM / Monday November 28, 2011
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Better watch out or you'll be pouting.

Christmas ornaments across the city were stolen in the wee hours of Monday morning. Police say three homes on East Main Street, between Gallup Street and Union Street, had decorations stolen off their lawn and two iBerkshires employees, one who lives on Curran Highway in Adams and another who lives on Porter Street, are reporting the same.

Residents who reported the crime told police that there were between six to eight people leaving the area and that an SUV, possibly silver, was also involved. The first report came in just after midnight, police said.  

Adams Police have not received any reports of missing decorations.

Any information regarding the stolen items should be reported to the North Adams Police Department at napdtips@northadams-ma.gov.

Vermont Police Investigating Double Fatal Shooting
Staff Reports On: 05:16PM / Saturday November 26, 2011
READSBORO, Vt. — State police are investigating a double fatal shooting that occurred early Saturday.

Police say Benjamin Birch, 39, of Readsboro was killed in a hunting accident near Howe Pond. Birch was reportedly chasing a deer with two other hunters when one of his companions, Timothy Bolognani, accidently shot him. Bolognani, 49, of Readsboro, was so distraught, said police, he used his rifle to take his own life.

Police and ambulance personnel originally responded to a report of one injured man, then two men, discovered at a camp in the small town. Unconfirmed reports had said there were two men, one in his 20s and the other in 40s, both dead of gunshot wounds.

This is the second tragedy in barely a year for the Bolognani family. Timothy Bolognani's 18-year-old daughter, Jessica, was killed in a snowmobile accident last January. Bolognani is the son of Betty Bolognani, former state representative.

While accidental, this is also the second double-fatality connected to guns in the last year in Readsboro. On Dec. 2, 2010, 47-year-old Robert Finley shot and killed his father, James Finley, 69, before turning the gun on himself in a domestic fight.

No further information was immediately available.

Updated and rewritten throughout, 11 p.m., Nov. 26.

His alleged accomplice, Laura Methe, 21, of Washington, the driver of the sport utility vehicle in which policy say he fled, is facing the same charges, in addition to motor vehicle charges including failure to stop for a police officer.

On Tuesday, Nov. 22, at approximately 10:50 p.m., the Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Domino's Pizza 321 1/2 Elm St.

Witnesses described the robber as a black man with a black hooded sweat shirt, wearing a mask and brandishing a gun. The suspect left in a white SUV. Officers responding to the area located the vehicle traveling on Dorchester Avenue. The operator refused to stop when signaled, and continued at a high rate of speed through the neighborhood streets, finally stopping when blocked in on Parkside Avenue.

During the chase, the passenger was observed throwing a gun out of the window. A BB gun and a mask were recovered along the route the vehicle traveled.

During the investigation, evidence linked the two individuals to the robberies at Domino's on Sept. 1 and Convenience Plus on Oct. 3, as well as attempted robberies at Dunkin' Donuts on Nov. 1 and Lipton Mart on Nov. 21.

Anyone who was in the Elm Street area between 10:30 and 11 p.m. on Tuesday night and may have observations relevant to the investigation is urged to call the Pittsfield Police Department at 413-448-9700.
