A 21-year-old Holbrook man was charged with trespassing and threatening to commit a crime.
BROCKTON – Three people are facing charges after arguing with staff of a tow yard Wednesday afternoon regarding a vehicle that was taken there, police said.
Four officers responded to Lynch’s Towing and Recovery Services, at 1200 Montello St., for a report of a disturbance about 4:25 p.m.
Police received a call from the staff, who said they wanted three people removed from the property because they were being argumentative and making threats.
“They were in an argument with the workers over a vehicle that was towed to the location,” said police Detective Sgt. Michael Dennehy. “They were being argumentative and using foul language.”
The officers asked the three people – two men and a woman – to leave, but police say they refused.
One of the men, identified by police as Dion Joshua Augustin, was making threats inside the office and kept refusing to leave after being ordered by the officers to exit the property, Dennehy said.
When Augustin was placed in custody, police say the other two – Tyrone Barnes and Desirae Carter – reluctantly left the tow yard.
Augustin, 21, of 107 Union St., Holbrook, was arrested and charged with trespassing, disturbing the peace and threat to commit a crime.
Barnes, 24, of 14 Selden St., Dorchester, was issued a summon on charges of trespassing, disturbing the peace and threat to commit a crime.
Carter, 20, of 592 County Road, Wareham, was issued a summon on charges of trespassing and disturbing the peace.
Augustin was expected to be arraigned Thursday in Brockton District Court, but the result wasn’t immediately available.
