Occurred on 11/14 at 3:15 AM – Beacon St./Hawes St.

Officers Kajita and Hill were conducting overnight parking enforcement on the inbound side of Beacon St. Their attention was drawn to a vehicle that passed their position at a speed that they estimated to be greater than the speed limit. Upon querying the license plate on the cruiser's laptop, they were notified that it was a stolen vehicle out of Quincy on 11/1.

They began following it in order to confirm the plate. The vehicle was observed going through a red light, and officers tried to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle failed to stop, and Officer Vragovic was called to assist. The vehicle finally stopped on Whittier St. in Boston, where two subjects jumped out and ran towards the Whittier Playground.

A foot pursuit began on Ruggles St towards Tremont St. One suspect entered a building, and another continued running down the street. Regardless of verbal commands to stop running, the second suspect refused, and he was eventually tackled to the ground at the intersection of Ruggles St. and Tremont St.

The first suspect was chased into a building and was located hiding in the shadows on the top floor. He was placed into handcuffs without incident.

Officers responded to the area for a report of damage to a motor vehicle. The concierge of the building noticed the damage to the vehicle on 11/11. The owner had been out of state since 11/4. The driver's side window appeared that it had been hit with some type of object causing it to have several cracks. The window was starting to break apart.

No other vehicles were damaged inside the garage.


Occurred between 11/7 and 11/10 – Station St.

A victim came to station to report a larceny. He stated that several electronics had been stolen from his apartment between 5:00 PM on 11/7 and 5:00 PM on 11/10. He was in the process and moving, and left his belongings in his apartment and his door unlocked.

Drug Offenses:

Occurred on 11/12 at 5:45 PM – Pearl St./Village Way

Detective Lt. Lipson observed a subject known to him from previous arrests as a heroin user and buyer. He was observed walking towards a pick-up truck that was occupied by a male and a female. The subject initially spotted was observed exiting the vehicle less then two minutes after he had gotten in. The detective believed a drug transaction had just occurred, and he followed the vehicle onto Brookline Ave., where it failed to signal, and he was able to initiate a traffic stop. Additional units were radioed to stop the subject who had left the vehicle.

After further investigation, the 3 suspect were arrested and will be charged with the following:

-Conspiracy to Violate Substance Abuse Act M.G.L. 94C s40

Taxi Fare Evasion:

Occurred on 11/12 at 4:10 AM

A cab driver came into the front lobby to report a cab fare evasion. He picked up a fare on Arlington St. in Boston who requested to go to Freeman St. Upon their arrival, she stated she would have to go to her apartment to get money, and left her purse with her passport with the driver. He waited for 30 minutes, during which she did not return.

Her purse, passport, and a receipt for the fare were submitted into evidence.


Occurred on 11/11 – New Terrace Rd.

Officers responded to New Terrace Rd. for a report of a past B&E. The victim reported leaving her apartment at 4 PM, and when she returned at approximately 5 PM, she discovered that someone had broken in and stolen her safe.

It appears that entry into the building was gained through the rear ground-level door. A neighbor reported hearing the safe being moved down the rear staircase at approximately 4:30 PM, but she believed it was the victims who had been moving it. Shortly thereafter, the neighbor looked out the rear window, and observed a mid-sized U-Haul box-truck parked in the rear of the building. It is possible that this truck was used to transport the stolen safe.

Occurred on 11/11 – Heath St.

Officers received a call for a past break on Heath St. The victims had left their apartment at approximately 9 AM and returned at 11 AM to find the front hallway door open and their apartment door open. Their daughter was sleeping in her bedroom during this time frame and did not hear or notice anything.

It appeared that the suspect had used a small hard object, possibly a screwdriver to force his/her way into the hallway and apartment, as there were fresh "jimmy" marks on the door frame of both doors. Several rooms appeared to have been rifled through. A necklace and cash were reported missing.
