Ethan Woodward of Hyannis Massachusetts is facing breaking and entering charges after police learned that he used the home phone of one his victims to call his girlfriend.
Woodward, who at the ripe young age of 22 already has a history of breaking and entering into houses on the Cape Cod was out on bail when he got arrested. Woodward was charged with breaking into six houses on the Cape after a being caught on foot by Barnstable Police.
Woodward had apparently left his cell phone in one of the home he had burglarized and then used a landline phone of one of his victims to call his girlfriend. Police were able to trace the call to the time of the break to determine Woodward had used the phone.
Woodward has not been accused in Barnstable District Court of being smart. He is facing numerous felony criminal charges of breaking and entering, malicious damage, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace.
Because he committed the crime while out on bail Woodward faces the possibility that his previous bail will have forfeited as well as his previous bail being revoked. That happens after someone is arraigned and given proper bail warnings. If someone gets bail warnings and almost everyone does, if the Assistant District Attorney can show that person committed a new crime and is a danger to the community that persons bail can be revoked and the person can be held in jail for up to sixty days. In Woodward’s case that does not seem hard.
