Real Life Somerville Police Stories


Anderson Arrest

On 09/08/2014, I was assigned to Somerville marked unit East One. At approximately 17:56 hours I was dispatched to Saks Fifth Avenue, on Canal St. for a reported shoplifter. Officers Capasso and Cabral were
dispatched as well. Upon arrival I was greeted by the store’s loss prevention specialist. Mr. Collin Anderson, the defendant in this matter was also present and seated in the loss prevention office. Via the security camera system, loss prevention observed the defendant conceal several items in his backpack. The defendant then attempted to leave the store and was stopped by loss prevention. Three women’s wallets were recovered from the defendant’s backpack. I viewed the loss prevention security footage, and witnessed the defendant concealing merchandise. The concealed merchandised was totaled up at $509.97. The defendant was placed under arrest for larceny over $250.
