Daily Dose of Great Police Work: One Arrested for Breaking and Entering to Downtown Boston Police Station


At about 2:31 AM on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, officers assigned to District A-1 (Downtown) observed an unknown male break into a locked door of the Boston Police District A-1 Neighborhood Station in the rear of 40 Sudbury Street.

While on patrol in the above area, officers observed the suspect violently pull on the locked rear door to the District A-1 garage and gain unauthorized entrance to the secured area.  The officers followed the suspect and attempted to attain the suspect’s information and reason for his presence in the secured garage.  The suspect then became belligerent toward the officers, yelling for the officers to get out of his house.  When the officers informed the suspect that he had broken into a secure area of the Boston Police Station, the suspect continued to yell out his address, and he became more argumentative with the officers.  When officers attempted to place the suspect under arrest, the suspect struggled erratically, pulling his arms away from the officers, tightly clenching his fists and arms, and tensing his entire body.  Once the officers were able to handcuff the suspect, he refused to stand and walk, forcing the officers to carry the suspect into booking area.

Twenty-four-year-old Michael Naughton of Somerville was placed under arrest and charged with Breaking and Entering in the Nighttime and Resisting Arrest.
