An Onset man is facing a larceny charge after police said he stole a vacuum from a Sandwich motel.

Police were called to the Sandwich Motor Lodge on Thursday last week at 10:18 AM when the motel owner reported that the owner believed that a guest had stolen a vacuum from the property. The owner said the culprit had covered a surveillance camera with black tape.

A 51-year-old Onset man was identified as the guest. Police spoke to the man, who they said admitted to covering the camera with tape, but denied stealing the vacuum.

Police said other surveillance footage indicates that he did steal the vacuum.

As a result of the incident, the man will be summoned to court on a charge of larceny from a building.
