4:32PM: Officers were dispatched to Beacon Street for a report of shoplifting. The reporting party, the store’s manager, told officers that he noticed a recently restocked shelf completely empty. When he checked the surveillance footage, he recognized an individual from a previous shoplifting incident.

Police are investigating.

When the reporting party confronted him, the suspect dropped the items and fled towards Harvard Avenue (Allston). A short time later, Brookline Officers stopped a man matching the description in a local coffee shop. He was positively identified by the loss prevention employee. He will be summoned to court for shoplifting.
