Impatient Thieves Arrested for Stealing Package from Delivery Van

On December 6, at approximately 9:50am an officer observed two male subjects in the area of Fairbanks Rd. and Washington St. The officer observed the men walking up and down Washington St. and conversing. The officer briefly lost sight of the men and continued down Washington St. where she noticed a white, unmarked van. The van was pulled over and the driver appeared to be making a delivery across the street. At this time the officer observed the subjects, Suspect 1 standing by the open front passenger door of the van, and Suspect 2 standing a few feet to the rear of the van. Suspect 1 was then observed closing the van door and walking towards Brookline Village with a brown box that he did not previously have. The officer stopped the men for a field interview at which point Suspect 1 no longer had the box. More officers arrived on scene and a brown box was located at the base of a tree nearby. Both men denied having anything to do with the van or package. The delivery van driver was able to confirm that the package found on the ground was one that he had yet to deliver. Both men were placed under arrest for Breaking & Entering of a Motor Vehicle and Larceny of Property Under $250.
