Hingham: A Framingham man believed to have broken into at least two homes

A Framingham man who allegedly robbed two homes in Hingham will be arraigned in district court Friday.

Just after 9:30AM Thursday, a Jarvis Ave resident was startled to find an unknown man exiting out the front door of their home as they were trying to enter.

Although the robber ran by the homeowner there was no confrontation between the two.

“Obviously he wanted to get away so when you corner that person or try to block their escape route they can get desperate and certainly in attempt to get way they could hurt somebody. We don’t encourage that and I’m glad that didn’t happen and there was no physical confrontation today,” says Hingham Police Sergeant Steven Dearth

Sergeant Dearth believes 36-year old Peter Michael Clear not only broke into one home on Jarvis Ave but at least two, that they’re aware of, stealing prescription pills like subxone as well as jewelry. The other Jarvis Ave homeowner was not home at the time of the alleged robbery.

The Framingham man was found by Hingham police walking on a nearby road sweating profusely and out of breath.

“He gave the reason to the officers, when they questioned him, that he was just here helping somebody move but he didn’t give any specifics on where that was or how he got there,” says Sergeant Dearth

Clear is scheduled to face a Hingham District Court judge Friday morning. He has multiple charges against him including larceny of a drug and breaking and entering in daytime.
