Another break-in on Monday afternoon has brought the town to a total of three incidents in just over a week -- unusual for a community that averages only two or three every year. Full Story

I'm hoping that perhaps "our person(s)" can be linked to the big arrest made by the Lenox Police on Friday. Check out the story on WNYT 13. The loser is from PITTSfield, the other big section 8 magnet in berkshire county. I read where he was charged with "receiving stolen property", that must mean something. I wonder if there is a link, these scum bags usually have connections, if not to make the robberies then at least to help them move the items along to collect the cash for the crack they are addicted to. Let's hope....check out the story, it's very similar!
Plus I read where a small silver car was reported all around Clarksburg recently. The crackhead from Pittsfield was arrested in a sliver car. coincidence???
By the way, those Lenox police seem to be tremendous. I read where they busted another dirtbag breaking into cars last week. Nice job!
It is time

I spoke to a Selectperson this evening and she will have the breka-ins on the agenda.
Ok Clarksburg residents and taxpayers,

It is time for your to show up at your own OPEN Town Selectman's Meeting. Be there Wednesday November 18th, 630PM. Our Clarksburgerlar needs to be stopped. Why should we sit around and wait for someone elses house to be next.
Shouldnt our selectmen do something for us?

FYI: Without any notice to the community who buys their dishrag newspaper, the bearkshire eagle laid off both of their north berkshire reporters recently. Now do you undertand why newspapers are becoming extinct like dinosaurs?

Read all about it.
This is not the dirt bag that is pulling off the B&E's in Clarksburg. While it is nice that this one has been brought to justice, keep your eyes open.

I agree Clarkburg needs to be on the look-out. This guy appears to be really desperate!
BE READY TO CALL 911 when you see him walking suspiciously.

this is gone to far wrote:
this is rediculous and we should have already stopped this guy. there has been reports that they sit in the woods and watch you and time when you leave for work and school in the morning. C-Burg police needs help up here. one guy and voulenteers cant do this alone. just think that right now there may be a man or woman (or both) that are looking at your house. its freeky. if you see a man or woman just walking down the street in the rain, isnt that a little strange. you dont need to take a photo just get the discription and turn it in. this needs to stop
When is everyone going to realize taking a picture is not going to do anything. They already know who it is, but cannot do anything until he is caught doing something wrong.People walk,jog,run around in Clarksburg all the time.The only way this guy will get caught is if he`s stopped coming or leaving some ones house. The only thing to do is when caught by THE PUBLIC hang him like a deer call the cops and report a dead man on your property.
Closing In

Keep up the good work everyone. We are closing in on this crackhead. Once we flush him into the sewer we'll be so much better prepared for when the next scumbag sticks his pinhead up out of his wormhole. This local junkie has changed all the rules for Clarksburg. We'll never be so naive again!

the problem with dirt bags like this guy when he getscaught he will probally get a slap on the wrist.this guy is going to break in the wrong house and when he does his days are over .the only thing that concerns me if this punk does have a gun will he use it.
Old School

I can tell you this easy rider, if the cops don't bring this piece of human excriment in soon, he'll be facing some old school justice.
Given the choice, I'm sure he'd rather be rotting in jail somewhere where he gets his 3 squares and all the man-love he can handle.
I realize that the town is getting frustrated because they don't think he'll ever be caught. He will, he'll screw up and then he'll pay the price. It's not like he is going to have a career change. He is a loser drug addict and will always be one. Even his family hates his guts and won't go to his house if he's there. What a total tool.
R.I.P. Clarksburglar, your days of freedom are quickly coming to an end.

For the last several years I have seen the Clarksburg cruiser patrolling in North Adams,more than its been in Clarksburg. In fact,I was backing out of a driveway one day on Liberty Street,and the Clarksburg cruiser came flying down the street so fast,with no lights or siren on,and almost hit me. I mentioned this to someone and they said that they allow the Clarksburg cops to patrol around North Adams cause they don't have alot going on in Clarksburg,in which case,I said,that if there is'nt anything going on in Clarksburg,maybe they consider disbanding the Clarksburg Police? And all of these breakins might be because whoever is doing it knows that the Clarksburg cops spend more of their time in North Adams,than doing their job in Clarksburg. A Police Officer's job is not only to act after a crime has been comitted,but to also provide security and patrol so that a crime is less likely to be comitted. Doing your job after the fact,is nice,but I think the residents of Clarksburg,who not only live there,but also pay the taxes that pay the police,deserve some protection,and not after its happened. This proves that the Clarksburg police,unless there is a serious emergency in North Adams,need to stay in Clarksburg and do the job the people of Clarksburg are paying them to do. If you are bored and want to be a cop where there's some 'action',then go to Springfield,but I think if you are a Clarksburg cop,then keep your ass in Clarksburg and do your job.

That's a great point Mack, thanks! The citizens of Clarksburg are planning on attending the selectmen's meeting Wednesday to try to get some answers from these cement-heads who supposedly manage the town.

I agree that the police need to patrol with thier cars in our neighborhoods. I do not feel safe or protected. AND I have not seen them out an patroling our streets.
They need to help us out up here. The residents cant do all the patrols!???
Old school justice is sounding like the only answer.

Rumor has it the kid who is the suspect lives off Middle Road some where between Wood Road and Horigan Road and all the B&E's have been right in that area.
Looks like there have been 4 now how many more until they do something???


You are absolutely correct he does live in that area pretty certain its who I think it is. Besides if he wasn't from the area why would he still sticking around just for the simple fact he might get caught. I not sure why that don't get him, I have had people tell me they have numerous pics of him is it because they need to catch him in the act.

Well when questioned by police on Sat 11/14 he supposably told police he was coming from his grandmothers house & she does live on Middle Rd @ since they are aware of his robbery to the grandmothers home while the grandfather was laid to rest (pretty sad he is robbing his family while they are all at his funeral) the police still let him walk.
