Three Hours After Being Bailed for First Arrest, Man Busted in Weymouth Landing
The following information was supplied by the Braintree Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
A 39-year-old Randolph man was arrested twice by Braintree police last Thursday, the first time for a warrant and allegedly trying to steal a motorcyle, and the second time just a few hours later for attemping to rob a pizza shop at knifepoint.
Roy Triolo was detained on an outstanding warrant at Messina Drive when someone called police and said he was acting suspiciously, Deputy Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement. Triolo was found in the bushes, and police learned from a nearby business owner that he might have had a key to a motorycycle he had attempted to steal.
"During this attempt, Triolo dropped the motorcycle and damaged it," Jenkins said. "Triolo’s backpack was searched and found to contain several tools that had both a legitimate purpose, but could also be used for criminal activity."
Later, at the police station, Triolo was also found with forty Clonazepam pills. He was charged with attempting to commit a crime, possession of burglarious tools, malicious destruction of property and possession of a Class C substance.
About three hours later, Jenkins said, after Triolo was bailed out, police were called to Weymouth Landing where Triolo had allegedly tried to rob Ultimate Pizza with a large kitchen knife.
Officers arrived to find three men holding Triolo down outside of the Four Square restaurant – the business owner, who chased Triolo out with another knife when he came in with a ski mask on, a regular patron of the pizza shop and a third man, Jenkins said.
Triolo was charged with assault to rob while armed.
