Dear Mr. & Mrs. Sweeney:

        I have reviewed the affidavit you delivered in hand on October 22, 1997.

        As I believe I indicated to Senator Tarr, this office would have no jurisdiction over a larceny that you allege was committed in Middlesex County.

        I will forward this affidavit to the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office for their consideration. I believe that bit would be very helpful in gaining a full understanding of events that you forward any supporting documentation through Senator Tarr to the Middlesex County Districts Attorney's Office.

      Sincerely,


              Kevin M. Burke
              District Attorney
              For the Eastern District
