Daily Dose of Great Police Work: K-9 Unit Flushes Out B&E Suspect, One Arrested in South Boston


At about 1:37 AM on Sunday, June 29, 2014, officers from District C-6 (South Boston) responded to a radio call for a commercial alarm in the area of 941 Massachusetts Avenue (Morgan Laundry Services).

Upon arrival, the officers were met by an employee of the above establishment who reported he had been notified by the alarm company that multiple alarm sensors had been activated in the building. Officers were also informed that the keypad for the alarm near the entrance door had been ripped off the wall and was missing.

Officers immediately set up a perimeter around the building and requested a K-9 unit to respond. As the K-9 entered the building, the officers observed the suspect run out the front door. Officers were able to apprehend the suspect, and they confirmed that he was an intruder not authorized to be in the building. A search incident to the lawful arrest revealed a small black flashlight and a multi-tool in the suspect’s pockets. Officers also found missing electronic equipment and computers recovered in a bag in the basement.

Thirty-one-year-old Isaac Poole of Boston was arrested and charged with Breaking and Entering, Possession of Burglarious Tools, and Malicious Destruction of Property.
