ATTLEBORO — Police are seeking to arrest a suspect wanted in connection with a break-in at a landscaping company who may be linked to similar crimes in other communities.

Derrick L. Headley, 39, whose last known address was in Boston, is wanted on a warrant charging him with breaking and entering into a motor vehicle, vandalizing property and larceny.

The charges stem from a break-in on Walton Street on Sept. 11 where a $830 radio was stolen from a pick-up truck at Ryleigh’s Diesel and Automotive Repair and copper wire was stolen from Cryan Landscaping, according to a police report.

Surveillance video police obtained during the investigation revealed two men in a Ford Expedition were responsible for the break-ins.

The Ford Expedition was linked to the theft of a landscaping trailer in Norwood and the theft of landscaping tools in Woburn, according to police.

Boston police recovered a landscaping trailer on Sept. 12 which contained items stolen from Cryan Landscaping and tools stolen in Woburn.

Also found were tools stolen in Chelsea and a backpack with mail linked to Headley, according to police.

Police do not know of his whereabouts and have taken to social media for tips leading to his arrest.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 508-222-1212.

David Linton may be reached at 508-236-0338.
