Worcester home invasion ends with missing firearm


Worcester Police responded to a home invasion Thursday night.

On Thursday, just before 6 p.m., Worcester police arrived at Dutton Street for a report of a break in.

The officer was told the home owners, a 41-year-old male and 35-year old female, arrived home at 5 p.m. and noticed someone had broken in.

According to police the suspect got in by forcing open the side door.

The owners told officers some electronics were missing along with a firearm the man legally owns.

Evidence allowed officers to identify the suspect as 32-year-old Sean Regele of Rutland, Ma.

Investigators began a search for Regele and shortly later he arrived at Worcester police headquarters and met with detectives.

Regele was placed under arrest and charged with the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, breaking and entering with the intent to commit a felony, larceny in a building, larceny of a firearm, carrying a firearm without a license and carrying a loaded firearm without a license.

He was arraigned Saturday at Worcester County District Courthouse.

The firearm has not been located.

The investigation is ongoing and if anyone has information they can send an anonymous text to 274637 TIPWPD or call the Worcester Police Detective Bureau at 508-799-8651
