Upon arrival officers discovered several items from within the Kiosk had been stolen. A review of video surveillance cameras in the area provided the officers with a possible suspect.

The male, later identified as Nathan Estey, 19, of Boston was observed attempting to open an iPod Touch and was also in possession of a backpack.
