At about 3:15am, on Saturday, September 18, 2010, officers from Area D-14 (Brighton) were on patrol in the area of Sutherland Road and Comm Ave when officers observed three individuals walking down the street. While monitoring the group, officers observed one individual kick the passenger side mirror off a car which then triggered the vehicle’s alarm system. Seeing this, officers approached the suspect and asked him to explain his actions. To which, the suspect replied, “I was just being stupid.”
Officers arrested Luis Costa, 20, of Cambridge and charged him with the Willful & Malicious Destruction of Property.
