This week in Saugus we had five Part-1 crimes. There was a grand theft in the 26500 block of Craftsman Court that was reported this week, however, it occurred back in June. The victim reported that someone had ordered $14,000 worth of merchandise from him. Once the merchandise was delivered the money he received from the transaction was taken out of his account. It turned out that the purchase was made using a fraudulent credit card.
There were two thefts from unlocked vehicles over the past week. The first occurred between sometime Sunday, 07/28/13 through Saturday, 08/03/13.
