On Friday March 20, at 4:45 p.m., Wareham Police responded to an address on Swifts Beach Road, for a breaking and entering in progress. Communications Officers Taylor Nelson and Nicolle Amaral advised responding units that the suspects were now fleeing the scene in a silver van, after entering the home and stealing items.

Within a minute, Officer Nate Aronson reported seeing a silver van on Swifts Beach Road and stopped it near the corner of Mather Drive. After stopping briefly the van then sped off before the officer could make contact with the occupants. Officer Aronson pursued the van, now being assisted by Sergeant Steve Soqui. The van turned onto Littleton Drive and abruptly stopped with all four occupants jumping out and running. Officer Aronson chased the suspects and with the assistance of Officer Joseph Cardoza one of the males was quickly apprehended behind Cranberry Grove Way.
