According to Deputy Chief Barden Castro, on Friday just before 6:45 a.m., Fall River Police Officers responded to O’Reilly Auto Parts, 171 Rhode Island Ave., to speak with the manager of that business who reported that someone had stolen money from the safe. The manager related upon coming to work and preparing to open the business he discovered the safe room had been ransacked and that an undetermined amount of money had been stolen.

After an initial investigation by officers assigned to the Uniform Division, the case was assigned to Major Crimes Division Detective Luis Vertentes for follow-up.
