INCIDENT #1: At about 2:16 AM on Saturday, October 7, 2017, officers assigned to District E-13 (Jamaica Plain) arrested three suspects after responding to a call for a breaking and entering in progress at the Alex Market II located at 198B Columbus Avenue in Roxbury. Officers quickly arrived on scene and could plainly see heavy damage to both the front interior glass door and the exterior metal grate security fence. As the officers exited their vehicle, they observed an unidentified suspect inside the store who appeared to be running towards the rear of the building. The officers set a perimeter and with the assistance of additional responding units, including BPD K-9 Duke, made entry and began to search the store. Officers located one suspect, later identified as Teyro McGee, 35, of Mattapan, hiding above them inside the drop tile ceiling and then located two additional suspects, later identified as Khalil Hall, 18, of Dorchester and a 17-year-old male from Roxbury, hiding inside a storage room. All three suspects were placed in custody without incident and will appear in Roxbury District Court for arraignment. Teyro McGee and Khalil Hall will be charged with Breaking and Entering, Larceny, Possession of Burglarious Tools and Malicious Destruction of Property. The 17-year-old juvenile will be charged with Delinquent to Wit: Breaking and Entering, Larceny, Possession of Burglarious Tools and Malicious Destruction of Property.

 

INCIDENT #2: At about 6:38 AM on Sunday, October 8, 2017, officers assigned to District D-4 (South End) placed one suspect in custody after responding to call for a residential breaking and entering in progress in the area of 46 Gloucester Street in the Back Bay. On arrival, officers were advised by the home owner that the suspect was still inside the building on the third floor. As the officers were making entry, they could hear the unidentified suspect attempting to flee via the fire escape in the rear. Additional responding units arrived on scene and searched numerous connected rooftops while following a trail of discarded items that the suspect had dropped as he fled. Those items were later recovered and determined to have been stolen during the incident. Officers continued their search and finally located the suspect, Matthew Kirker, 27, of Spofford, NH, hiding underneath a roof deck bench atop 284 Newbury Street. The suspect was placed in custody without incident after being positively identified. The suspect will appear in Boston Municipal Court on numerous charges including Breaking and Entering, Attempted Breaking and Entering, Possession of Burglarious Tools and Receiving Stolen Property.
