On Wednesday, August 29, 2012, at approximately 1:11 am, Dudley Police and Dudley Fire and Emergency Services Personnel were dispatched to 14 Dudley Hill Road for a report of a motor vehicle on fire.
Upon arrival, it was discovered that three motor vehicles in the yard of the residence had been set on fire. A tree stump in the lot next to the residence was also burned. The vehicles had been extinguished by the homeowner prior to the officer’s arrival. All three vehicles suffered damages. It is believed some personal items, which were contained in the vehicles, had been burned at the tree stump in the adjacent lot.
The home owner provided officers with the name of a possible suspect along with a video tape of this incident.
Later in the day, Officer Marek Karlowicz, Sergeant Dean Poplawski, State Trooper Gregory Spahl of the State Fire Marshall’s Office, and Dudley Fire Captain David Konieczny reviewed the video and conducted further investigation.
The officers arranged for two female subjects to come to the Dudley Police Department for interviews. Based upon information obtained through the review of the video and talking with suspects and witnesses, the officers arrested Kimberly Waitkevich, age 36 of 32 Partridge Hill Road in Dudley. She was charged with several offenses including Burning of Motor Vehicles, Burning Personal Property, Breaking and Entering a Motor Vehicle with Intent to Commit a Felony, Destruction of Property under $250, and other offenses. A second female subject is being summoned into court at a later date on similar charges.
The case remains under investigation.
The Dudley Police wish to thank the Dudley Fire Department and the State Fire Marshall’s Office for their assistance with this investigation.
