Suspect Accused Of Breaking Into Gov. Baker’s Swampscott Home

SWAMPSCOTT, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Essex County District Attorney’s Office said a suspect was arraigned last week on charges of breaking and entering into Gov. Charlie Baker’s Swampscott home.

Lane Forman allegedly went into Baker’s home while the governor’s security detail was in the driveway, according to the WBZ-TV’s I-Team. First Lady Lauren Baker and her daughter were also reportedly inside.

WBZ-TV’s I-Team reports Forman allegedly entered through a side door, gaining access to the kitchen where he left documents and photos, as well as a letter address to Gov. Baker.

Massachusetts State Police reportedly confronted the suspect after he left the house. That’s when Forman allegedly swore at the officer, telling him that Gov. Baker had told him to drop off the letter.

At his arraignment, Forman’s bail was set at $5,000. He was released with a GPS tracking device, and was ordered to stay away from and have no contact with the governor and his family. He was also ordered to undergo a competency evaluation.

Forman is due back in court on Nov. 4.
