Robert Gramolini, 63, of Malden, pleaded guilty, on January 4, to having four stolen trailers in his possession.
According to federal law enforcement officials, video surveillance from May 16, 2020, showed Gramolini stealing a black trailer from a business in Hampton, N.H. Police recovered the trailer four months later at a storage facility 15 miles away in Brentwood, N.H. The facility’s owner told police that Gramolini was renting space from him. While searching Gramolini’s space, police found three other trailers that were reported stolen from Massachusetts.
Although Gramolini confessed to stealing the Hampton trailer, he had “varying stories” regarding the three trailers from Massachusetts. Gramolini even went so far as to tell police that he found one of them on “the side of the road.”
“I am grateful to the law enforcement officers whose hard work put an end to this defendant’s criminal activities and held him accountable for his unlawful conduct,” said John Farley, U.S. attorney for the District of New Hampshire. “We work each day with our law enforcement partners to protect residents of the Granite State from crime and to seek justice for crime victims.”
According to New Hampshire law, Gramolini could face up to 15 years in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 26.
