On Thursday, November 29th, 45-year-old Derrick Degrace was arrested by Barnstable police for his apparent involvement in a string of recent crimes which included breaking and entering, theft, fraud, forgery and more. This was not his first run-in with the police. In fact, when Degrace was arraigned the following day, it was his 250th arraignment. According to police, Degrace's criminal record dates back more than 25 years. The judge ordered Degrace be held on a $10,000 cash bail, and he is expected back in court on December 20th.
