Crime of opportunity on Christmas Eve lands man in jail


So he called him.

Nigro, who during the restraining-order hearing had been telling a judge he was broke and homeless, was enjoying breakfast at Red’s, where police found him.

The money, or what was left of it, $238, was stuffed into a sock, Prosniewski said.

The cash was returned to the Peabody father, and Nigro was taken back to the courthouse, this time as a defendant charged with larceny in a building.

Nigro’s court-appointed lawyer argued that the money Nigro had on him at the time of his arrest was his, not stolen, and Nigro pleaded not guilty.

Judge Michael Lauranzano shook his head as he set bail at $200, according to Prosniewski.
