SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — If two heads are better than one, then it’s likely Raymond Descoteaux and Mark Davis both spent some time planning the elaborate heist Springfield Police say they pulled on Sunday, April 28th.
“In the middle of the afternoon, in broad daylight, they went over to this construction sight behind me at Main and Front streets in Indian Orchard,” says Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney. “They put on traffic vests, helmets, they had a red pick up truck and they acted like they were working the site.”
Of course, it was a Sunday and all the real construction workers had the day off.
With the site all to themselves, the imposters had no problem helping themselves to some of the raw materials.
” They got about $1,000 worth of metal off the construction site,” says Delaney. “Again, if they’re doing this here in Springfield, they could be doing it anywhere.”
But Springfield Police say security cameras were rolling at one of the neighboring businesses, and now they know exactly who to look for.
“They pulled the video from that Sunday and, lo and behold, they got the plate number on their car,” says Delaney. “They got the pictures of the guys, they investigated these guys and they’ve got warrants for both subjects.”
If you see Descoteaux or Davis, call 9-1-1, or you can send police an anonymous tip. Just text it to CRIMES or 2-7-4-6-3-7 and in the message type SOLVE and your tip.
