Brian Baker, 51 of East Falmouth, was arraigned in Quincy District Court on charges of felony nighttime breaking and entering, larceny over $250, and malicious destruction of property over $250. The case was continued to Jan. 10. Baker was released on personal recognizance.
The charges stem from a Oct. 7 incident in Braintree at 10:59 p.m. when police responded to a report of breaking and entering at Kmart on Grossman Drive.
Police said an employee saw a person in front of the store who then fled in a red minivan. Police said they found that the bottom section of the store front door had been shattered. Store surveillance cameras captured the suspect with a pry tool. The suspect then went directly over to the jewelry counter, vaulted over it, and began breaking into jewelry cases stuffing gold jewelry into the suspect's jacket.
