Daily Dose of Great Police Work: Boston Police Officers Arrest Suspect in Charlestown Armed Robberies


On Thursday, July 5, 2018, in a joint effort between Boston Police Department A-1 detectives, S.I.U., S.W.A.T., and members of the Boston Regional Intelligence Center, Brandon R. McCallop of Boston was arrested and charged with Armed Robbery while Masked.

In the past month, members of the Boston Police Department investigated three separate armed robberies that occurred at stores in Charlestown. In each incident, the victim reported they were robbed at gunpoint by a man with small dark eyes. The victims all gave similar descriptions of the suspect, his clothing, and his behavior.

Investigators worked quickly to make these connections, gather evidence in each case, and were able to identify a suspect. Armed with three arrest warrants for masked armed robbery and a search warrant for the body of Brandon McCallop, members of the Boston Police Department secured the perimeter and made entry at 84 Walnut Av. where McCalop was arrested without incident.
