A Fall River man has been arrested after surveillance video shows him robbing two homes – in a hard hat.

Fall River Police arrested Benjamin Clay, 44, outside his home Friday after a months-long joint investigation amongst Foxboro, Wellesley, and Westwood Police detectives.

Home surveillance footage shows Clay entering a home in Foxboro on September 9, wearing a hard hat and vest, and entering a home in Westwood on the same day.

Police have seized numerous items including jewelry at his home and are working to identify those goods.

Clay has been charged with breaking-and-entering and associated charges.
