Police arrest man for breaking into Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker’s home
According to WCVB-TV, Forman had paperwork with him and told state police that he was just leaving that paperwork for Baker.
SWAMPSCOTT, Mass. (WLNE) — A Massachusetts man was arrested after he broke into the Swampscott home of Gov. Charlie Baker.
Authorities confirmed that Lane Forman was arraigned in Lynn District Court last Wednesday on a misdemeanor breaking-and-entering charge.
Forman, a 59-year-old from Danvers, Mass., was confronted by Massachusetts State Police troopers after he made it inside the house.
State police cruisers are usually stationed outside the governor’s home. But somehow Forman found his way into the Governor’s home.
According to WCVB-TV, Forman had paperwork with him and told the troopers he was just leaving that paperwork for Baker.
Forman was released on $5,000 bail, but he has been ordered by the court to stay away from Baker, his family, and their home.
Police attached a GPS device on Forman to assure that he doesn’t come close to Gov. Baker or his Swampscott home.
Forman was also ordered to undergo a competency evaluation, according to police.
Neither Baker’s office nor the Massachusetts State Police are commenting on the incident.
