Burglary Victim Caught Breaking into Check Cashers

Early this morning around 3:03AM, officers from District E-13 (Jamaica Plain) arrested suspect, Brett G. Callahan, 20 of Charlestown and charged him with Breaking and Entering in the Night with Intent to Commit a Felony, and Possession of Burglarious Tools. Officers initially responded to 362 Centre St.  as a result of a commercial alarm going off.  Officers arrived on scene and almost immediately detected noise coming from the rear of the building. Officers set up a perimeter around the building and within a short time detected someone on the roof of the building. Officers ordered the suspect to show his hands and get down from the roof. The suspect instead of heeding the commands of the officers started running on the roof making his way to the far end of the roof. Officers then got on the roof and pursued the suspect, caught and placed him under arrest. The Boston Fire Department responded to the scene and assisted officers with getting the suspect off of the roof.

Once the suspect was secured, officers returned to the scene and observed the rear door of 362 Centre St. to be open. The location was cleared and no other suspects located inside. Officers during a search of the area recovered a pair of bolt cutters.
