5:33 pm: A Beacon Street resident reported a B&E with larceny. It appeared that someone had used brute force to enter the apartment through the front door. A camera and multiple camera lenses were stolen. Evidence was taken from the scene for further analysis.
7:13 pm: Officers responded to a call for a B&E on Boylston Street. It appeared that entry had been made through the front door of the apartment building and the apartment door using a pry tool. One of the victims stated the apartment appeared to have been rummaged through and his laptop and checkbook were stolen. The suspect had forced open a small safe to obtain the checkbook.
9:53 pm: Officers responded to Beacon Street for a B&E of an apartment. The victim stated that although the front door was locked when she arrived home, she noticed boxes and drawers disturbed inside the apartment. The victim is unsure if any items are missing. The rear door of her apartment was unlocked when she arrived home and there was no forced entry to the door. The victim will follow up with what was taken from the apartment.
11:39 pm: A Short Street resident reported a strange odor in their apartment. Officers had responded to the apartment a few hours earlier for the same call and the residents had already been advised. Firefighters informed the resident that the odor was most likely related to renovations being made in the building and reported to officers that the adjacent apartment appeared to have been forced in, but had been secure on the prior call. Varnish appeared to be freshly spilled in the bathroom of the apartment. Responding officers spoke with the caller asking if he knew anything about the damage to the door. First, he denied having anything to do with the damage and avoided answering questions. Later, details of his story changed. It was observed that to gain entry into the building one would need to be buzzed in and no damage was made to the front door. Damage to the apartment door appeared to have been made using a fire extinguisher outside of the apartment. The resident was placed under arrest for malicious destruction/damage of property and B&E in the nighttime.
