Have you had packages stolen from your front porch? Local law enforcement may have found yours. Maura Healey, the Massachusetts Attorney General, announced earlier today (bold emphasis added):
“In connection with an extensive investigation into a criminal organization engaged in restaurant break-ins and property theft, state, Boston and local law enforcement have uncovered dozens of stolen Amazon packages and will return them today to ensure that they get back to shoppers before the weekend, Attorney General Maura Healey announced today.
This week, four individuals were arrested and arraigned in connection with a series of break-ins at restaurants in Quincy and Taunton, allegedly smashing cash boxes and forcibly ripping away safes. During the investigation, authorities uncovered dozens of stolen Amazon packages at one of the suspect’s homes… ason Geddes, 29, of Boston and Dharol Joyner, 33, of Boston, were arraigned yesterday in Quincy District Court in connection with a break-in and theft from a Wendy’s restaurant in Quincy on Dec. 14… While searching Joyner’s home, investigators uncovered dozens of unopened Amazon packages and boxes addressed to customers in Greater Boston. Investigators believe that Joyner stole these packages while working a part-time job as a delivery contractor…”
Investigations are still ongoing. Kudos to the Boston Police Department, Brookline Police Department, and the Massachusetts State Police.
