Thursday, October 11th

A report of a larceny of a scooter was made on Fairbanks Street.  An officer met with the reporting party who stated he parked his scooter across the street from his building and used a chain to secure it to a small tree.  He last saw it on 10/9/18 around 7:00 PM.  He noticed it was gone on 10/10/18 around 9:00 AM.  The scooter is described as a Genuine Scooter, roughhouse model that is red with an MIT faculty sticker on the rear.  This case is under investigation. 

3:50 PM- Officers were dispatched to Harvard Street for a shoplifting incident.  The store manager relayed to officers that an employee notified him that a female was placing items into her bag.  The suspect attempted to exit the store after passing the registers.  The manager stopped the suspect and asked if she was going to pay for the items in her bag in which she responded she didn’t have anything to pay with.  The manager asked the suspect to empty her bag of the items she stole and she complied.  Police placed her under arrest for shoplifting.  Some of the items in the bag were not identified by the store manager as their products.  Officers went to surrounding stores that could possibly sell the items unaccounted for and asked the managers if they could identify the items as theirs and if an individual matching the suspect had been in their stores.  One store was able to confirm the suspect’s presence and the items.  The other store confirmed their store sells the items but could not determine if the suspect had been in the store.  The suspect is being criminally charged.
