Easton Police arrested two teens Monday morning for allegedly breaking into a vacant strip plaza at 750 Washington Street.
George Holyoke-Spencer, 17, of 24 Center Street and a 15-year-old juvenile from Easton were charged with breaking and entering a building during the daytime, malicious damage to property and larceny, according to Easton Police Chief Allen Krajcik.
Krajcik said police first received a call at approximately 8:45 a.m. from a resident who reported seeing two suspicious males at the strip mall. The witness said he saw the males smash a window with a bat and gain entrance. The call resulted in the arrival of cruisers to make the arrest.
Foxborough police arrested two suspects in a Rhode Island robbery case Monday night at a local hotel after receiving information from the Providence Police Department, according to police logs.

- Cunningham - Three default warrants; receiving stolen property over $250; grave marker removal

Mansfield selectmen voted 3-2 to euthanize Milo the dog Wednesday after hearing from both the victim's family and the dog's family.
The dog reportedly attacked 6-year-old Christian Hebert on Jan. 3 while at the house of the dog's owner Michael Bailey. Hebert suffered severe injuries to his face, ear area and thigh.
After the vote, the Baileys said they would try to appeal the ruling in court.
The board heard statements from both sides as well as from Mansfield animal control officers Jeffrey Collins and Steve Simmons.
Collins said while he met the dog only once, Milo seemed to be calm and docile in front of a stranger, but the severity and depth of the bites, based on his experience and the Dunbar system, were excessive.
"I have several dozen cases of various people that have been bitten ranging from a minor bite in the hand to a young lady who was knocked by two dogs, who worked as a pack, ravaging her shoulder and head," he said. "This bite is excessive."
Collins recommended the dog be euthanized after determining the dog's aggressiveness and danger using the Ian Dunbar scale, which determines the animal's intentions by examining the number, degree and depth of the dog's bite.
Police found a man sleeping in his vehicle at 1278 Park St. (Jubilee Church) in Stoughton shortly before 2 a.m. on Feb. 24.
William Lawrence Albrecht, 52, of North Main St. in Randolph, was arrested for operating under the influence of liquor (2nd offense).
