Police arrest 2 in Turnpike Cafe burglary


Two local men are facing multiple felony charges after allegedly burglarizing the Turnpike Café on Route 138 last Wednesday, April 8. One of the suspects was arrested leaving the scene and another was arrested later that morning, apparently escaping from a swamp.

Shortly before 5 a.m., Canton police responded to an alarm at the restaurant, and upon arrival, an officer noticed that a door had been broken and observed a vehicle pulling out of the parking lot. Officers stopped the vehicle and arrested Michael Aiguier, 30, of Dorchester, and charged him with breaking and entering in the nighttime, possession of burglarious tools, and larceny over $250.

Later that morning, around 11:30 a.m., a Wayside Lane resident called police and reported seeing a suspicious-looking man walking in the area. Wayside Lane lies to the east of Turnpike Cafe and a swamp separates the two areas.

Officers located the suspect, who was found to be covered in mud and wet from his knees down. He was eventually identified as Dennis Mahony, 35, of Brookline, and arrested on three preexisting warrants and six felony charges related to the break-in at the Turnpike Café. Police said they found items taken from the restaurant in his possession.

He was charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime, larceny from a building, malicious destruction of property over $250, possession of burglarious tools, and two counts of conspiracy to commit a felony (breaking and entering and larceny from a building). Following his arrest, he was transported to a hospital for possible hypothermia where he was treated and later released back into police custody.

Police credited the Wayside Lane resident for reporting the suspicious man and all of the officers who worked on the case, including Brian Ronayne and Ensley Cotard.
