Yarmouth Police Detectives, along with members of the State Police Violent Fugitive Section and the New Bedford PD Gang Unit, joined forces on Monday to arrest a man wanted by Yarmouth Police for his role in a home invasion on January 12, in Yarmouth.
Michael Stande, 33, of Maxfield Street in New Bedford – a convicted felon and no stranger to local law enforcement – was taken into custody at his residence. Stande’s wife, Kathleen Lyons, was already in custody by Yarmouth Police for her role in the crime.
Stande was taken to New Bedford Police Department Headquarters for booking on charges of armed robbery with a firearm, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery, and conspiracy to commit an armed robbery.
Following NBPD’s booking, Stande was taken to Yarmouth PD Headquarters and held until his arraignment in the Barnstable District Court Wednesday.
