Soap store break has police scrubbing for answers

Police want public's help to ID suspect


The longtime owner of the popular store said she was alerted to the break-in by another shop owner who called her when he noticed the police were inside her store. Sirard said she would contact other downtown businesses as well to see if perhaps the suspect worked in the area.

But Simons said the suspect is unknown to police, leading him to believe he does not frequent the downtown area.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect or the break-in is urged to call the Newburyport Police Department at 978-462-4411 and ask for inspectors Michael Sugrue or Matthew Simons.
