Foxborough Police: Thief Gets Stuck in Mud After Burglary

Police3

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Police say a man who robbed a Foxborough home had to call a tow truck after getting stuck in the mud while making his getaway.

Chief Edward O’Leary says a man broke into the home on Tuesday, and loaded up his pickup truck with two television sets, a camcorder, camera, jewelry, and other items.

As he made his escape, he backed off the driveway and onto the ground softened by rain.

He got stuck.

He used rock salt, wood and even a throw rug under his tires to get traction without success before finally calling for a tow.

O’Leary tells The Sun Chronicle the suspicious tow truck driver alerted police, who tracked the truck to a Taunton man who had just been released from prison. Police are still looking for him.
