As many as 50 vehicles were broken into, with the thieves making off with cell phones, cameras, iPods and other items.

Police got a break Tuesday when they pulled over a car and an officer noticed that one occupant had a 6-inch folding knife in his belt that he suspected was stolen.

After a search of the car, and a later search of another vehicle and one residence, police say they recovered a large cache of items they believe are stolen, including a Weymouth police badge and a handicapped parking placard.

Arrested were 17-year-old Nicholas Furtado; 19-year-old Ryan Furtado; 25-year-old Richard Hagerty; and Arpad Voros Jr. They were held on bail after pleading not guilty.
