Acton Man Arrested in Weston Now Facing Charges in Wayland

The following information was supplied by the Wayland Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

The Acton man arrested by Weston police last month is now facing similar charges in Wayland.

Wayland police have charged John E. Williams, 21, with breaking and entering in the daytime to commit a felony, larceny over $250 and receiving stolen property over $250. Wayland PD has obtained an arrest warrant, though Williams currently remains in custody at Middlesex County Jail in Cambridge, according to Wayland Det. Sgt. Jamie Berger.

Wayland police have tied Williams to a break-in on Concord Road reported on Aug. 14, during which a computer was stolen.

Berger said a sting operation in August, a collaborative effort among the Weston, Wayland, Lincoln and Acton police departments, ultimately revealed numerous stolen electronics in Williams' Acton home. Many of those items were stolen from Acton locations, but items taken from Weston and Wayland were found as well.

Additionally, Berger subpoenaed Williams' cell phone records and found that calls from Wayland coincided with the time of the Concord Road break-in. Berger said that it appears Williams broke into nearby homes during his shifts of picking up and dropping off customers' cars for an Acton dealership.

As previously reported on Patch, police believe that Williams' motive was to steal electronics, sell them on Craigslist and save up enough money to move to California.

Berger estimated that Williams is already facing more than 10 charges from various jurisdictions, and more charges could be coming.
