3:30AM- Officers were dispatched to Brookline Place for a larceny. They were met by a security officer who reported seeing through surveillance footage a white male coming out of the garage and dropping two duffel bags full of copper near the construction site. He then walked away from the garage near Brookline Avenue. Due to several thefts of construction equipment Police have been patrolling the area. It appears the suspect saw the police car when he exited the garage and dropped the bags. An officer saw an individual matching the suspect’s description on Kent Street and pursed him unsuccessfully. The officer recognized him as a known individual. His description was radioed to other officers. Boston Police and a K-9 were involved in the pursuit on the MBTA Green Line. At 5:00AM a State Trooper responded to the area around the suspected individuals address to see if he was in the area and if he matched the description of the suspect. The suspect spotted a state police officer and ran into his home. After trying to make contact with him by knocking and calling his name for about 40 minutes the suspect attempted to flee through a rear window where he was detained. He was asked if he had stolen copper from a construction site in which he responded yes. During questioning at the Police Station the subject admitted to the theft. The follow up investigation resulted in a search warrant being executed at the subject’s residence. The search resulted in the recovery of construction tools. Any construction workers in the area who may have missing tools should stop by the station to see if we’ve recovered any of yours. The suspect is being charged with breaking and entering at night to commit a felony, larceny from a building and trespassing.
