A Boston man and a Middleboro man were arrested on larceny charges for allegedly stealing multiple pairs of Ray Bans from a Boylston Street store this week.
A Boston Police officer working a construction detail was flagged down by a security officer on Boylston Street who stated that two unknown males had stolen merchandise from a near by store. The security officer informed the police officer that store security officers had detained the suspects at the corner of Boylston Street and Clarendon Street.
Upon arrival, the security officer stated to the Boston Police Officer that he had observed, via store security cameras, both men selecting multiple pairs of Ray Ban sunglasses. The two suspects fled the store once the security officer made his presence known. The security officer also stated that he had witnessed one of the suspects biting at the security sensor and price tag on the sunglasses. The suspects made their way down Boylston Street while the security officer followed close behind them.
Once stopped at detained, it was determined that both men had taken three sunglasses. One of the suspects was wanted on several warrants as well.
Sean O’Halloran of 250 Beacon Street, Boston and William Curtin of 181 North Main Street, Middleboro were charged with larceny of $200 or more. The stolen merchandise was returned to the security officer.
