3:04PM: Officers were dispatched to Harvard Street for a report of shoplifting. Upon arrival, the loss prevention employee told police that he noticed a woman place several items in a shopping cart and only pay for a few. When confronted, the suspect admitted to taking several items without paying. Loss prevention employees detained the woman until officers arrived. The suspect was verbally advised of trespassing and will be summoned to court for shoplifting.

5:52PM: Police were dispatched to a business on Harvard Street for shoplifting. A loss prevention employee told officers that ultimately the items had been recovered, but the suspect fled. The reporting party noticed a man rolling up clothing items and placing them under his arm. When the loss prevention employee confronted the man, he returned the items but fled towards Beacon Street. The suspect is a Hispanic man in his 40’s, with a mustache or goatee, wearing a black jacket (possibly with “BU” letters) and blue jeans. Multiple units canvassed the area but could not locate the subject.

10:36PM: There was a report for shoplifting on Commonwealth Avenue. A man with multiple reusable shopping bags stole several items before fleeing towards St. Mary’s Street. An employee attempted to follow and stop the suspect but eventually lost him. The reporting party told officers that he did not recognize the suspect as a shopper in the store. The subject is described as a 40 year-old white male, wearing a green and white checkered jacket. This case is under investigation.
