BROCKTON – A Holbrook man has been sentenced to serve 10-13 years in State Prison
for a series of break-ins in three South Shore towns, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy
J. Cruz announced today.

Jamie Johnson (DOB: 09/13/76) of Holbrook, was found guilty Thursday after a trial in
Plymouth Superior Court on three counts each of Breaking and Entering in the Nighttime and
Larceny over $250. Judge Jeffery Locke sentenced Johnson to serve 10-13 years in State Prison
to be followed by three years of probation from and after.

On September 2, 2013, Johnson was arrested during the commission of a housebreak in
the town of Randolph. At the time of his arrest, Johnson was in possession of a pair of gloves
and flashlight and was wearing a GPS monitoring device that had been issued to him by the
Quincy District Court Probation Department.

Utilizing GPS technology, Detective Kim Jones of the Marshfield Police Department was
able to determine that Johnson was at the scene of 10 housebreaks in the towns of Marshfield,
Hanson and Pembroke between May and September, 2012. The GPS records documented that
Johnson traveled in a manner consistent with casing the homes and being present at the homes at
the time of the alleged breaks. Johnson broke into five homes in Hanson, three homes in
Marshfield and two homes in Pembroke. In total from the homes he stole cash, jewelry, an Ipod,
a laptop computer and three handguns. The various break-ins occurred while the victims were
away on vacation or at work.

Assistant District Attorney Brian Fahy prosecuted the case, which was investigated by
the police departments in Marshfield, Hanson and Pembroke.
