Pair charged in Danversport car breaks

DANVERS — Two people have been charged with breaking into cars on Riverside Street in Danversport early yesterday morning and stealing cash from two of them, police said.

Mason Boulay, 19, of 1 Dustin St., Peabody, and Gabrielle Rohde, 19, of 13 Barnard Hawkes Court, Marblehead, during their arraignments in Salem District Court yesterday, pleaded not guilty of charges of breaking and entering to motor vehicles and receiving stolen property.

A resident of the street who heard noises looked out his window and saw a man in a black “hoodie” sweatshirt opening car doors and going through vehicles shortly before 3 a.m., according to a police report.

Police spotted someone fitting that description getting into a Buick as they arrived.

The car was stopped, and police asked the driver, Rohde, what she was doing in the area. She claimed to have been visiting a friend but said she did not recall the friend’s name or where she lived.

The neighbor who called identified Boulay as the man he had seen rummaging through cars. Police believe four cars were entered. and one of the owners said that about $90 was taken. Police found $88 on Boulay.

Boulay recently served a 90-day sentence for breaking and entering in Peabody, a prosecutor said, and Rohde is on probation for heroin possession and awaiting trial on charges of driving while under the influence of drugs in Lynn.

Boulay’s lawyer, Paul Moraski, said his client earned the money found on him from shoveling snow.

Mark Barry, who represented Rohde, said she had an interview scheduled yesterday afternoon to be admitted to a treatment program.

Judge Michael Lauranzano held Boulay on $500 cash bail, while Rohde was released on personal recognizance.
