Real Life Somerville Police Stories:Richard D’ALIO & Brandon TRACY (Shoplifting) Assembly Row KMart Arrest 


 

On Friday, May 5, 2017, while assigned to unit Alpha-3 at Assembly Row for the Somerville Police Department, I was contacted by loss prevention associates from K-Mart and was informed that they had two shoplifters that they were trying to get back into the store and would not co-operate with them. I called this into dispatch and requested an additional unit to the parking lot. Unit East-4 (Officer Canty) and East-1 (Officer Reece) responded. I located the two individuals later identified as Brandon Tracy and Richard D’Alio. Loss Prevention Associate XXXXX informed me that the two individuals had taken several items, including beverages and several bottles of cologne. He informed me that Mr. Tracy and Mr. D’Alio had removed the security wraps on the cologne and discarded them in the store, and exited the store with the merchandise. Mr. Tracy was carrying a paper bag and inside of it was the bottles of cologne, along with several items from Saks Off Fifth, a store that is located less than 100 yards from where we were standing at the time of this interaction. At this time I asked dispatch to check the names of the two individuals, to which they found a warrant for Mr. D’Alio and one for Mr. Tracy. Both individuals were cuffed (DL) and I requested for unit 200 (prisoner transport vehicle). Upon searching the individuals, several pairs of clippers were found on their person. In my experience, these types of clippers are used to remove the security devices from merchandise in stores. Both parties were transported back to the Somerville Police Station via unit-200 by Officer Clark and booked in the usual manner by LT. Lavey.

      Mr. Tracy will be charged with:

        Shoplifting by asportation, 3rd offense

        Removal of theft detection device

        Possession of anti-theft device removal tools

 

     Mr. D’Alio will be charged with:

        Shoplifting by asportation, 2nd offense

        Removal of theft detection device

        Possession of anti-theft device removal tools

 

 

     Respectfully submitted,

 

     Officer Christopher Fusco #328
