Transit Police/Nicholai Dandurant
On September 21st, 2012 at approximately 5:50 pm Transit Police officers assigned to Area 1 were on patrol at the South Station bus terminal when they were approached by a female victim. The victim informed the officers after she was engaged in brief conversation with a male, unknown to her, she noticed that her wallet was missing. The victim described the male as having large "loops" through his earlobes. One of the observant officers recalled seeing a person fit that description approximately 20 minutes prior. The officers made their way to the male suspect's last known location, just outside the bus terminal entrance. Sure enough the male, later identified as Nicholai Dandurdant, 23 of Hooksett, NH., was seated on a wall just outside the terminal entrance. Officers approached Dandurant and asked if he had just spoken with a female, Dandurant immediately stated "yes" and made reference to knowing her wallet was missing and wanting to return it. Indeed Dandurant was in possession of the victim's wallet containing her cash and ID's. The sudden wave of remorse displayed by Dandurant coincidentally happened when Transit Police officers appeared in his life.

Dandurant was placed into custody for Larceny from the Person and transported to Transit Police HQ for the booking process. Dandurant will appear in Boston Municipal Court on Monday morning (09/24/2012) for his arraignment.
