Patrick Concannon
On March 14, 2016 at approximately 5PM members of the Transit Police Point of Entry Policing  Team were at the MBTA's South Station Commuter Rail when they were approached by a victim of a bicycle larceny. The victim explained his bicycle was stolen 2 days prior from Back Bay station. The victim located his bicycle on a Craigslist posting, advertising its sale, and contacted the seller. The poster agreed to sell the bicycle and instructed the victim to meet at South Station (Red Line entrance) to conduct the transaction. Shortly thereafter the officers observed two males (later identified as Patrick Concannon, 28, of Braintree and Terry Carter, 28, of Boston.) walking towards South Station in possession of the victim's bike. Officers approached the duo and placed them into custody for Receiving Stolen Property. The bicycle was returned to its rightful owner. Concannon and Carter were transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. They both appeared in Boston Municipal Court-Central Division on today's date.
