Braintree Police: TV thieves were planning more heists

Pin It

Braintree Police say two men and a woman have been arrested in connection with the theft of a TV from K-Mart in Braintree last weekend–and it appears that the K-Mart was not the only target in their cross-hairs.

Police arrested 24-year-old Jacob Tarbox of Whitman, 26-year-old Anthony Davidson of Holbrook, and getaway driver 27-year-old Tonya Marie Moniz of Holbrook this past Wednesday, after the group allegedly fled K-Mart in a black Ford Explorer with a stolen 32” Panasonic television. Moniz’s five-year-old son was with her at the time of her arrest.

After the arrests, officers discovered a list titled “Targets/Victims” which included items to be stolen, their value and stores where they could be located. A second list was discovered in Tarbox’s pocket.

All three suspects have been arrested and charged with larceny over $250, receiving stolen property over $250 and possession of the stolen registration plate. Moniz was additionally charged with operating after suspension.
