Adams Man Facing Charges Related to 2 Break-ins

ADAMS, Mass. — Police arrested have arrested an Adams man thought to be connected to two break-ins earlier this month.  
 
Andrew D. Allard, 32, was arrested June 14 after making his way from Adams to North Adams in an alleged attempt to cash in some stolen collectible coins.
 
The coins reportedly match those stolen from a home on June 9 and Allard is implicated in another break-in on June 11. 
 
According to a press release from the Adams Police Department, police were first alerted after they say Allard attempted to place these collectible coins into a Coinstar machine located at Adam's Hometown Market. The machine rejected the coins, which prompted him to go to the front desk where store employees recognized the coins as collectible.
 
Employees questioned Allard, according to police, and he exited the market leaving the coins behind.
 
Officers conducted an investigation while Allard headed north to Walmart. North Adams Police were contacted and store management was made aware.
 
At Walmart, the press release states, it was reported that Allard purchased a Tracphone minutes card with the coins. He then went to customer service, where he returned the card for a refund.
 
Officers were alerted and Allard was confronted when leaving the store.
 
Upon further investigation, it was found that the coins Allard allegedly used had been stolen during a June 9 house break-in in Adams.
 
Allard was arrested on a charge of receiving stolen property. He was booked and held at the police station on $2,000 cash bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Northern Berkshire District Court in North Adams.
 
Police say Allard also was arrested for breaking and entering into an Upton Street residence on June 11.
 
The homeowner's security system picked up the intrusion and an image of Allard was recorded, according to police. He was arrested and held on $1,000 bail until he was arraigned on June 12 in Northern Berkshire District Court and released on personal recognizance.
