Occurred on 11/16 at 4:45 PM – Boylston St.

Officer Kajita was monitoring traffic at approximately 201 Boylston St when he observed a vehicle pass by his location. He noticed the registration sticker had an yellow '11 sticker, and queried the plate on his cruisers' laptop. It came back with a expired non-renewable status. Additionally, the registered owner had an active arrest warrant out of Woburn District Court for Failure to Appear for Jury Duty.

A traffic stop was initiated, and the driver was placed under arrest for the straight warrant issued out of Woburn. She was also issued a citation for Operating After Expired Registration, and an Expired Inspection.


Occurred on 11/16 at 1:50 PM – Starbucks (277 Harvard St.)

Officers responded to Starbucks to take a larceny report. The victim stated that she arrived at Starbucks, placed an order and became seated at a table at approximately 11:15 - 11:30am this morning. While seated, she had her purse hanging over the back of her chair while she remained seated and working on her computer. At approximately 1:45pm, she realized her bag was no longer on her chair. She looked around the area and in the bathroom and then notified the staff prior to calling the Police. She stated that she had not left the table at any time and did not observe any suspicious activity while seated. Surveillance footage is being obtained.


Occurred on 11/16 at 11:44 AM – Chestnut St.

Dispatch received a call for a breaking and entering in progress. The caller stated that she observed a black male, approximately 5'10" in the rear lot of the building complex. She stated that she observed this male subject looking in her windows which are ground level. She described the male subject as possibly in his twenties, wearing a black jacket, a black baseball hat (no writing or insignia observed), blue jeans and carrying a black backpack. She then observed the male subject walk alongside the building and down the driveway that is along the side of the building leading out to Chestnut Street. She then stated the male subject entered the front of the building through the front door which was not fully secured.

A few minutes later, the caller heard the sound of tools and banging. She stated that it sounded like the door was being slammed against maybe with a shoulder. As she was on the telephone with dispatch, an officer arrived on scene, and as he rang the buzzer, she stated she heard the back door of the building close.

Several units responded to the area. A basement apartment was discovered to have been broken into. Several pieces of jewelry were reported missing. A follow up is being conducted by the detective division.
