A break was also reported Thursday at 1 Merrill St. Solomon said the incident remains under investigation.
Rodriguez is believed to have gained access at 37 Taylor St. through a rear cellar window before stealing jewelry and a watch, according to a police report. The incident was reported at 10:33 a.m.
Officers were then called to 61 Tudor St. at 11:40 a.m. for a suspicious vehicle. A witness reported seeing Limone in the vehicle and Rodriguez run up to the rear of the residence. When the witness called police, Limone sounded the car horn and Rodriguez ran outside carrying a 40-inch flat screen television and laptop computer, according to a police report.
Rodriguez then got in the driver’s seat and drove away. The television and laptop are valued at $1,420, according to the report. Also reported missing was a gold watch. Police said the items are being held as evidence but are expected to be returned back to owners.
Officers on Tudor Street discovered broken windows on two side doors of the residence, with one of the doors left open. A screen from a rear window was also on the ground.
Police identified Limone after receiving her license plate number from the witness. Police were also notified by N.H. Pawn Broker Services of Salem, that Limone had come into the shop and sold the television just minutes after the break was reported.
Pawn shop surveillance video reviewed by detectives in Methuen and Salem showed Limone arriving at 12:08 p.m. in a green 1998 Mercury Sable, or roughly a half hour after police were notified of the break.
At 1:45 p.m., Salem police located Limone’s vehicle unattended in the CVS Pharmacy parking lot at 512 South Broadway. The vehicle was later towed by Methuen police for evidence. Found inside the vehicle were several pieces of jewelry and the stolen laptop.
