DVD THIEVES ARRESTED IN THE SOUTH ENDAt about 8:45pm, on Monday, April 14, 2008, officers from Area D-4 (South End) responded to a radio call for a larceny in progress at Newbury Comics at 330 Newbury Street. On arrival, officers spoke to store employees who stated that two white males entered the store, grabbed a large number of DVDs and took off. Witnesses described the suspects as two white males in their late teens with brown hair. In short time, officers located two suspects who matched the description of the suspects. When officers attempted to stop the suspects, the suspects attempted to escape capture by climbing over a fence. One of the suspects succeeded in getting over the fence, the other did not. In short time, however, the second suspect was apprehended. Officers arrested Brian O’Hare, 18, of Roslindale and a 16 year-old male from Roslindale and charged both with Larceny (Over $250.00). The stolen DVDs were recovered and entered into evidence.
At about 1:33am, on Tuesday, April 15, 2008, officers from Area A-1 (Downtown) responded to a radio call for a motor vehicle accident in the area of 120 Rutherford Avenue. On arrival, officers located a black motor vehicle, still running with major body damage. According to the operator of the car, a red Ford Mustang cut him off forcing his car into a wall. According to the victim, both cars stopped. Victim further states a person riding in the passenger seat of the Ford Mustang jumped out of the car, walked over to him and stated that they were going to get help. It was at this time the Ford Mustang fled the scene and never returned. When officers asked the victim in the incident to provide a license, the victim, instead, showed officers his passport. Since the victim was unable to provide a valid license to operate a motor vehicle, officers arrested Gilson De Souza Roth, 26, of Brockton and charged him with Operating Without a License.
