B&E&L of MV:
Occurred on 12/13 between 7:30 & 8:30 PM – TJ Maxx (525 Harvard St.)
An individual approached an officer to report that her vehicle had a smashed window. Her GPS was missing. There were no signs of pry marks on the window frame, and no tools were left behind at the scene. Surveillance video of the parking lot reveals the suspect on a bicycle entering from the Lawton St. side. He then rides around the area where the vehicle is parked and then is seen at a distance directly next to the vehicle. The suspect then exits the parking lot through the main Harvard St. exit/entrance in the direction of Commonwealth Ave. He appears to be a white or Hispanic male, unknown adult age, wearing a black jacket, light blue jeans, white/blue sneakers, and a navy blue hat. After viewing the video, the suspect is also seen wearing grey colored winter gloves, although it is unknown if these were worn during the break (as the suspect's body was blocked by an adjacent parked vehicle).
A similar incident occurred in the parking lot of the Starbucks at 473 Harvard St. That victim reports parking at 6 PM and returning to her vehicle at 8 PM. The front passenger side window had been smashed out, and the vehicle rummaged through. There appeared to be pry marks on the window frame from some kind of tool used for leverage. Her GPS and a camera were stolen.
