(The Patriot Ledger) - Police say a North Weymouth, MA man’s goals for Friday included committing a break-in, robbing a drug dealer, buying and selling drugs and a random act of kindness.
Evan T. Dorsey, 25, of 43 Bicknell Road, accomplished at least one of those goals, according to police, who arrested him for breaking and entering Friday afternoon. The rest of the items were written on a to-do list in a notebook Dorsey was carrying, police Capt. Richard Fuller said in a press release.
Dorsey was arrested outside a home on Manomet Road after officers saw him trying to pry open a door, Fuller said.
Officers responded to the area of Blackstone and Sagamore roads in North Weymouth at about 5 p.m. Friday after residents reported seeing a man carrying a bag and knocking on doors. The callers told police they saw the man, later identified as Dorsey, break into a garage on Wessagusset Road. When two of the residents confronted Dorsey, he said he was going door-to-door conducting a survey about opening a marijuana dispensary, Fuller said.
The officers spotted Dorsey on nearby Manomet Road where they watched while he knocked on a side door, then stole diabetic supplies including insulin from a UPS package on the doorstep and attempted to pry open a door before the officers stopped him, Fuller said.
Dorsey was carrying a blackjack, burglary tools and about two dozen pieces of jewelry, Fuller said. Dorsey had no explanation for where the jewelry came from.
He also had a notebook with a list of goals for the day including finding crystal meth, getting a gold watch, committing a break-in or robbing a drug dealer, selling drugs, getting cocaine and doing one altruistic act for a stranger, Fuller said.
Dorsey was charged with breaking and entering in the daytime for a felony, larceny of drugs, possession of class E drugs, possession of burglary tools, receiving stolen property over $250, receiving stole property under $250, carrying a dangerous weapon and attempting to commit a crime.
Police are still investigating where they stolen jewelry came from and say Dorsey is a suspect in several other crimes in the area.
He was due to be arraigned in Quincy District Court on Monday.
