Two people were arrested for separate instances over the weekend after allegedly breaking into Amherst homes.

Amherst Police Department Detective Joshua Harris said police responded to 622 Main St. Apt. F at 3:28 a.m. on Dec. 8 after residents reported that a person unknown to them had entered the house.

Harris said that with assistance from K9 Officer Marvin, the suspect was located on the property.

The suspect, William Murray, 21, of Reading, Mass. was arrested on charges of defacing property, disturbing the peace, attempting to commit a crime and possession of a class B narcotic.

Harris said police suspected a “white powdery substance” found on Murray to be cocaine, however laboratory testing will be conducted to verify the material.

At 4:36 p.m. the same day, police responded to a call from a caretaker at 559 S. Pleasant St. who reported someone was inside the home. Upon police arrival, a suspect was found hiding in a closet.

Blake Welti, 21, of Wayland, Mass. was arrested on a charge of breaking and entering during the night time to commit a felony, Harris said.
