Chayet home stripped for second timeA year after two crooks were caught stealing the copper gutters from Neil Chayetâ€™s historic home in Salem, two more bandits have been busted trying to take the valuable downspouts. â€œIâ€™m feeling like we should have a copper company on retainer,â€™â€™ says Chayet, whose â€œLooking at the Lawâ€™â€™ radio commentaries air on WBZ-AM and about 100 other stations nationwide. â€œThis is very discouraging.â€™â€™ Last time it happened, the culprits were arrested at gunpoint after stripping the gutters from Chayetâ€™s meticulously restored 1811 house. (Itâ€™s the former home of US Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story.)
In that case, Chayet showed compassion. The pair were ordered to perform community service, pay restitution, and write a letter of apology. â€œBut thereâ€™s been nothing â€” they never paid anything or wrote the letter,â€™â€™ he says. In the latest heist, which took place last week, Chayet and his wife were sleeping when they heard metal being pulled from the building. Chayet dialed 911 and within two minutes the police arrived. Arrested were Steven Kenney and Joshua Boschard, both of Beverly. â€œWe put the gutters up, they steal them, we put them up, they steal them,â€™â€™ says Chayet. Will he be compassionate this time? â€œIâ€™m not inclined to be, no,â€™â€™ he says.
