NORTHBOROUGH, Mass. — A Westborough man faces breaking and entering charges after he was accused of drunkenly breaking into a Northborough home that he thought belonged to a friend, according to police.
Responding to a burglar alarm at 1:05 a.m. on Sunday, police found Adam Boyce, 29, of 17 West End Ave., Westborough inside the residence at 44 Fisher Drive, Northborough.
The front door was broken down, according to Sgt. Jim Bruce. "It appears that he was intoxicated and thought he was entering a friend's house," Bruce added.
Boyce told police that he had been dropped off at Fisher Drive after eating at the Dragon 88 restaurant in Boylston.
No one was home at the time of the break-in, Bruce said. Boyce did not take anything from the residence, the damage to the front door will cost about $4,000 to repair, Bruce added.
Boyce was scheduled to be arraigned today in Westborough District Court on charges of wanton destruction of property over $250 and breaking and entering in the nighttime for a felony.
