Ludlow Police Arrest Chicopee Man Following Home Break In

drouillardLUDLOW, Mass. (WGGB) — The Ludlow Police Department says a Chicopee man is being held without bail after they say he broke into a home on Alfred Street and took off on foot Wednesday evening.

23 year-old, Michael Drouillard Jr. is facing a number of charges including B&E Building Daytime for Felony Destruction of Property over $250, Malicious Trespass, Disturbing the Peace, and Resisting Arrest.

Drouillard will be arraigned tomorrow in Palmer. He was out on parole at the time of this arrest, and police say he has an extensive record.

In a police log report sent to ABC40 by Sgt. Daniel Valadas Wednesday evening, it details how officers were first notified of a male wearing a black T-shirt, dark jeans and running through the neighborhood on Massachusetts Avenue talking on a cellphone.  The call came into police at about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Shortly thereafter, officer received a second phone call from a homeowner at 40 Alfred Street who had just arrived home and found the kitchen door on the floor and her home broken into.

The suspect was seen running towards Holyoke Street and officers ended up finding him behind The Hair Gallery Inc. on that same street and that’s when a foot chase ensued.  A short time later police were able to place the suspect in custody now identified as Drouillard. Police say it was a quick turn-around for a case of breaking and entering.

No word yet on if anything was stolen from the Alfred Street home.

The Ludlow Police Department continues to investigate this incident.
