On November 25th, 2012 at approximately 10:15am Transit Police officers assigned to Area 1 were on patrol at MBTA's Chinatown station, outbound platform, when their attention was drawn to two males, later identified as Jose Correano, 30 of Boston,MA. and Luis Quiles, 41 also of Boston,MA. Correano and Quiles were huddled together in what appeared to be an attempt to hide something from passersby. The officers walked in their direction and observed both males holding several wrist watches with the "price tags" still affixed. Upon noticing the officers Correano and Quiles attempted to stuff the watches into their pockets and began to walk away from the officers. The officers caught up to both subjects and engaged them in conversation. It was determined the watches, 13 in total, had recently been stolen from Macy's department store located a short distance away. Quiles confirmed he was just inside Macy's and ultimately admitted to stealing the mechandise. Both Quiles and Correano were placed into custody for Receiving Stolen property and transported to Transit Police HQ for the booking process. The watches were confiscated as evidence and an employee from Macy's loss prevention team confirmed, via the SKU number, the watches were from Macy's. Both subjects will appear in Boston Municipal Court sometime today.
On November 25th, 2012 at approximately 3:30pm Transit Police officers assigned to Area 2 received a radio call to respond to MBTA Lechmere station for a report of a male party who was running in front of the oncoming trolley's. Upon arrival officers spoke with an MBTA employee who witnessed and pointed to the male, later identified as Alzy Bello, 27 of Boston,MA. , who was "darting" in front of the trolleys. Officers approached Bello to ascertain what his reasoning was and to explain the dangers associated with crossing over the tracks in the presence of oncoming trolleys. Bello replied by stating he had a "right to remain silent". He certainly did, turns out Bello had an outstanding warrant for his arrest issued from Brookline District Court for motor vehicle violations. Bello was placed into custody for the warrant and transported to Transit Police HQ for the booking process. Bello will appear in Brookline D.C.
