Man Arrested For Felony Breaking and Entering

Swampscott and Lynn police teamed to arrest a man living on Pine Street in Swampscott. He is accused of stealing more than $30,000 worth of property from a Lynn residence.


A 29-year-old man living on Pine Street in Swampscott faces charges of breaking and entering a Lynn apartment and resisting arrest by a Swampscott police officer.

Robert Cennami, 58 Pine St., was charged with the felony breaking and entering for allegedly stealing more than $30,000 worth of jewelry, vintage coins and memorabilia including a photograph of Babe Ruth signed by his daughter, according to court records.

The record also indicates that Cennami is wanted by NH authorities for a parole violation, and is a suspect in several recent break-ins at Dunkin' Donuts in Vermont, the record states.

Cennami allegedly forced his way into a Cherry Street apartment in Lynn on Dec. 8, and stole the jewelry and other items.

Two days later, a Lynn police detective and Swampscott police Det. Tim Cassidy stopped by 58 Pine St as part of the investigation into the Lynn breaking and entering.

Cennami attempted to flee the house through the rear door and ran right into Det. Cassidy, according to the report.

The suspect allegedly struggled with police as they attempted to place him under arrest, the report states.

Police subsequently found items in the Pine Street home that were listed as stolen from the Lynn residence.

On the living room floor police found a shoe box inside which were coins and the autographed Babe Ruth photo.

Christopher Mullins, 21, was living in the room. He was placed under arrest, charged with receiving stolen property. Police then searched him and found coins in his pocket that were identified as stolen, the record states.

Cennami was arraigned in Lynn District Court on the breaking and entering charge and was ordered held on $5,000 bail. 

He has a pretrial hearing scheduled Jan. 24.
