Police seek suspicious man in sweatshirt

LYNDEBOROUGH – Police are looking for a man reported to be on foot on Route 31 (Forest Road) around daybreak on Tuesday morning.

Police Chief Rance Deware said someone reported seeing a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt with the hood up near the intersection of Old Temple Road and Route 31 at about 4:30 a.m. on July 15.

Later someone reported to The Cabinet that he saw a man with a similar description run into the post office property, located on Route 31 about a half mile south of Old Temple Road, about 4:42 a.m.

Deware said the sighting might be connected to recent thefts from vehicles, but there have been no more incidents reported since two cars were broken into on Center Road late in June.
