'Town'-style holdup suspect challenges search


Barry testified yesterday that he'd imposed a second 30-day curfew just two days before the PetSmart holdup, after hearing that Wallace was seen at a Swampscott ATM at 4 a.m.

But Barry's supervision notes contain no reference to that second curfew until March 21, more than four days after the holdup, he acknowledged.

Wallace has insisted that he was never told of the second curfew, and his lawyer, Buso, argues that anything turned up as a result of his arrest on the parole warrant should be thrown out as evidence — including a rubber mask, handguns, the bulletproof vest, a police-style tactical vest, a battering ram, a can of gas, bolt cutters and other items.

The hearing is expected to resume Thursday afternoon.
