The suspect in last Thursday's attempted break-in on Seabury Point Road was arraigned in Plymouth District Court last Friday, Sept. 25.
Tyler Peach, 25, of Elm Street was charged with breaking and entering in the daytime with intent to commit a felony and placing a person in fear, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He will be back in court on Oct. 23 for a pre-trial hearing.
Peach was apprehended while fleeing the scene of the attempted robbery. The first officer on the scene, Patrolman Christopher Coppage, said in a police report filed with the court that he received the call around 11:04 a.m. Thursday and parked his cruiser on Bay Road to look for the suspect.
Shortly after that, a white male wearing jeans, a gray shirt and a bandanna around his neck ran out of the woods, the report said. Coppage gave chase, while yelling at the man to stop, for about 20-30 yards before catching up with the suspect, and ordering him down on the ground. The suspect, later identified as Peach, refused to comply and Coppage and another officer had to put him on the ground physically, the report states. Peach continued to resist the officers' attempts to arrest him and after repeated warnings, police used pepper spray to subdue him, according to the report. Peach was brought back to the home, where the homeowner identified him as the man she had interrupted breaking in.
Police said earlier this week that they believe there was at least one other suspect involved in the break-in, but they were unable to locate him despite a search that lasted until after 6 p.m. on Thursday.
Peach is still being held on $100 bail as of Friday afternoon.
