Police are looking for a driver who crashed into another car on American Legion Highway at Mt. Hope Street Wednesday afternoon - hard enough to flip the other car over.

The crash occurred shortly before 4 p.m. when the driver - whom police say had been spotted speeding and driving erratically moments before - plowed into a car whose driver was turning left onto Mt. Hope. The driver, whose vehicle had been reported stolen, stopped and helped the other driver - who was not injured - out of the car, then walked away.

Everybody loves learning about history in Boston

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 01:03:39 +0000

Rick Gates, the Trumpie who pleaded guilty today to conspiracy and lying to the FBI, is seeking a judge's permission to bring his kids to the Hub over spring break to learn about American history and stuff.

The purpose of this trip is for Mr. Gates to show his children around the Boston area to learn about American history in general, and the Revolutionary War in particular. This proposed trip of course cannot take place in Richmond, as it is intended to expose Mr. Gates's children to historical sites that can only be visited in Boston.

Missing Dogs Massachusetts is a Facebook page that's normally just what it sounds like. So a posting today is a little unusual, but, then, there aren't many places to look for a missing falcon:

BOLO: Beloved family falcon is missing, last seen Plum Island area. She is very friendly and social and will likely seek out humans by landing on a car or a house, and squawk at them. Still has tether on.

Two B&E suspects nabbed in Allston/Brighton

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 14:29:17 +0000

Boston Police report arresting two men for two separate break-ins in Allston and Brighton on Wednesday.

Police say officers responded to a report of a break-in at 47 Park Vale Ave. in Allston around 4:10 p.m., in which a man was spotted climbing into a unit via a second-floor building while clad all in black and carrying a black bag. They spotted Quang Nguyen, 50, looking just like the description of the burglar, a few blocks away, detained him and returned him to the building, where witnesses IDed him, police say. He was charged with burglary and receiving stolen property.

Around 9:55 p.m., officers responded to another B&E call, at 202 Market St., in Brighton, where witnesses described a guy skulking around the rear of the building, trying knobs and looking through nearby parked cars.

On arrival, officers located a male fitting the description of the suspect. When asked to explain why he was in the area in light of a clearly posted ‘No Trespassing’ sign, the suspect was unable to provide an adequate or articulate response. A search of the suspect enabled officers to recover several items stolen out of a motor vehicle to one of the residents of the building.

Anthony Knight-Dingle, 31, was charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle in the night time, attempted breaking and entering a residence in the nighttime, receiving stolen property and trespassing.

Innocent, etc.
