A couple from North Carolina has been arrested after an accused Braintree MA break in. George Demetro, 36, of Wilkesboro, NC, and Dina M. Miller, 42, of Boone, NC, were apprehended by police after the homeowners of a Braintree home on Burton Road said the pair had talked their way into the house by claiming to be electrical inspectors. The truck that the accused couple was driving had over $60,000 in stolen goods, including jewelry and silverware.

The couple was charged with daytime entry by false pretenses and receiving over $250 in stolen property. Mr. Demetro was able to get inside the Braintree home while Mrs. Miller distracted the 75 year old woman who answered the door. Demetro then yelled to her when he found a man in an upstairs bedroom. Demetro told the man that he was there to check out the water.

After claiming to be checking the water, Demetro and Miller got into their truck and drove away. In a sad turn miller's two sons, ages 9 and 10 were present with the couple during their Braintree break in. The two children have been turned over to the State Department of Children and Families. The couple is being held overnight without bail pending their arraignment.
