3:33 pm: Officers were dispatched to Commonwealth Avenue for a report of a past shoplifting. The reporting party stated that two males had entered the store and stolen an unknown amount of electric razors. Officers were shown surveillance footage of the two subjects entering the store at approximately 3:22 pm and stuffing items into a utility cart they had brought with them. They then exited the store and head inbound on Commonwealth Avenue. One of the subjects is described as wearing dark jeans and a blue button down shirt with a white undershirt underneath. The second individual was wearing a grey T-shirt with a Spiderman face on it and a gray Patriots hat. Detective follow up was requested.

4:38 pm: An officer was dispatched to an address of Verndale Street for a report of a bicycle theft. Upon arrival, the reporting party stated her bicycle had been left unlocked on her front porch the previous evening around 9:00 pm and the next morning at approximately 7:55 am she noticed the bike was no longer where she had left it. The bicycle is a Men’s Green Trex 800 with a light on the handle bar.

11:55 pm: While monitoring traffic at the intersection of Boylston Street and Cypress Street, an officer observed a vehicle make an illegal U-turn on Boylston Street. The officer activated her overhead lights and conducted a traffic stop. The operator provided her vehicle registration and a Massachusetts Identification Card. The operator was not licensed and only had a permit. The passenger of the vehicle stated that he also did not have a license. A query on the driver found that she had a warrant for her arrest for unlicensed operation. She was issued a citation for operating without a license and for the illegal U-turn and she was placed under arrest. The vehicle was towed from the scene.


12:44 pm: A citizen reported a past fraudulent use of her credit card. She reported there were two purchases made in another state on her account on 5/27/2017 that she had no knowledge of. The reporting party stated she was in Massachusetts during the date in question, her card has been in her possession, and she has not made any online or telephone transactions recently. She has notified the card provider of the transactions.

6:54 pm: Brookline Fire, Fallon Ambulance, and Brookline Police officers responded to several calls that a car ran into a concrete overhead light pole at the intersection of Route 9 and Cypress Street. The occupants were deemed not injured. The operator indicated he had been heading north on Cypress Street and received a green light to proceed into the intersection. He proceeded to make a left turn onto Route 9, but stated that he received glare from the sun causing him to momentarily lose normal visibility and the car ran into the concrete overhead light on the narrow median strip. The pole incurred no damage, but the motor vehicle sustained major front end damage. The vehicle was towed.


4:52 pm: Officers responded to an address on Stedman Street for a report of a B&E in progress. The reporting party stated she observed several males inside and around her garage attempting to steal bicycles. After observing the males, she opened her door and her dog ran out causing the individuals to flee. She described them as males with buns on their heads. The bikes they rode were BMX style bicycles excluding one of them that had a basket on the back of it. The suspects were located at Beacon Street and Carlton Street. The reporting party was then asked to participate in a show up ID in which she identified the suspects as those that were in her garage.  The individuals were transported to the Brookline Police Station where they would be released into their parents’ custody. One individual was found to be in possession of red bolt cutters which were placed into evidence and the bicycles were placed into bulk property for safekeeping until their legal owners could be determined. The juveniles will be summonsed to court for Trespassing and Attempted Larceny from a Building.
