Man Allegedly Broke Into Hingham Home, Used Grandmother As Getaway Driver

HINGHAM (CBS) — Police in Hingham say a 22-year-old man allegedly had his grandmother drive him to a home and wait outside while he broke into the home.

Police were called to Black Rock Drive on February 14, after a homeowner arrived home and saw an unfamiliar car in the driveway with a woman in the driver’s seat. The resident then saw a man walk from the side of his house and get in the car and leave.

Upon further inspection, the man found a window smashed and cash was missing from his home.

Using video surveillance, police tracked down the license plate of the car, registered to a 64-year-old Roxbury woman. When police questioned the woman, she told them her grandson had asked her to drive him to a friend’s house in Hingham.

The grandson, Gabriel Nieves, 22, of Holbrook, was arrested and charged with breaking and entering in the day for felony, larceny from a building and malicious damage to property.

Police say the grandmother had no knowledge her grandson was breaking into the house and will not face charges.
