Wednesday, March 13th

9:06AM: Officers were dispatched to Coolidge Street for a bat call. The reporting party told officers that at 1:30am she was awakened by something flying over her head. When she turned on the lights, she realized there was a bat in her room. The reporting party eventually trapped the bat in one of the bedrooms. Police arrived on scene but could not locate the bat. The Brookline Health Department has been notified of this incident.

4:37PM: Police were dispatched to Beacon Street for a past shoplifting. The manager of the business told police that she reviewed surveillance footage after she noticed a recently stocked shelf completely empty. While checking the cameras later that day, the reporting party noticed that at 2:20pm, a black male entered the store and began taking several items off the shelves and placing them into his bag. He then exited without paying. It is possible this suspect has shoplifted in this area before. Police are investigating.
