No TrespassingOn Tuesday afternoon at 3:47pm D-4 (South End) officers responded to 134 Northampton Street to investigate the premise. Upon arrival, officers were not immediately let into the apartment, but eventually a Hispanic male opened the door. Officers ordered the suspect as well as all parties present in the residence to exit and remain the hallway until a protective sweep could be completed.

The officers found the residence to be unkempt, with drug paraphernalia observed in plain view. At this time, Operations informed officers that the caller was in fact the mother of one of the suspects and that the apartment was her residence. She stated that her son was not welcome in the apartment and wanted him and his friends removed immediately. Responding officers said that they had responded to the same apartment the previous night and escorted all of suspects present out and warned them not to return or they would be charged with trespassing.
