Cambridge Man Convicted of Breaking in to Cambridge Art Institute

Fingerprint evidence led to conviction and sentencing of 2 years


Following his arrest by Cambridge Police in July,  Clark Caravan, 52, of 12 Homer Square in Somerville was convicted in Cambridge District Court on October 10 of Breaking and Entering Daytime for a Felony.Criminal in Handcuffs

This conviction stemmed from an April 2011 break-in at the Cambridge Art Institute, where Caravan broke into the building, stole a laptop, and fled with no witnesses to the crime.

The case rested on fingerprints found at the scene on the exterior and interior of a locked office door inside the building

“I am proud of the work done by our detectives and members of our Identification Unit who were able to locate and process the fingerprint evidence at the scene,” said Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert C. Haas.  “Without their diligent work and clear presentation of the evidence in court, Mr. Caravan would not have been convicted for the crime he committed.”

Caravan was sentenced to a maximum of two years in the Billerica House of Corrections.
