Detectives of the Mass State Police to meet with Falmouth Police Detectives

Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe today directed Detectives of the Massachusetts State Police assigned to his office to meet with Falmouth Police Detectives and take possession of a Wal-Mart security tape involved in a malicious damage case in Falmouth, in which a John Reine is alleged to have slashed the tires of a motor vehicle.

Following the dismissal of the case in Falmouth District Court yesterday, Falmouth Police brought the tape back to the police station. Massachusetts State Police Detectives will work with the Falmouth Police in the review of the case by the District Attorney's Office.

A review of the case and of the problem with the security tape will be undertaken with a view toward refiling the case in Court.
