WORCESTER – Early Thursday morning, officers with the Dudley Police Department found 44-year-old Joseph Carpenter, of Worcester, hiding in a tree house behind a residence on Laura Way in Dudley.

According to the Dudley PD, Carpenter had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. He was found in the tree house in possession of several items that have been determined to have been stolen from vehicles in the area. 

Carpenter is charged with receiving stolen property, disturbing the peace, and trespassing. He is also charged with motor vehicle theft of a 2013 Mercedes that had been reported stolen out of Charlton.
