Traffic Stop Leads to Felony Arrest

A 30-year-old man was charged with forgery after cops discovered a stack of suspect credit cards and thousands of dollars in his car following a routine traffic stop.

The man was stopped on Nov. 28 at 12:53 a.m. after he ran a red light at the intersection of Atlantic and Grand avenues. While writing the ticket, police discovered that the man had a suspended driver’s license and two previous suspensions.

After cops impounded the car they found $14,907 in cash in the trunk as well as “a substantial amount” of credit cards with a variety of names on them and a South Carolina driver’s license that didn’t belong to him.

St. Johns Place iPhone Snatch

A 29-year-old man was walking from the Franklin Avenue train station at about 6:45 p.m. on Nov. 26 when a man in his 30s grabbed his iPhone out of his hand, jumped into a white Honda sedan and drove off.  The theft took place on St. Johns Place between Classon and Franklin avenues.


St. Johns Place Break-In

A 24-year-old woman reported that someone broke into her apartment during the day while she was a t work and stole two MacBook laptops worth a total of $3,000. The burglary took place on Nov. 26 on St. Johns Place between Underhill and Washington avenues.


Teen Punched at Franklin Avenue Station

A 16-year-old boy was punched in the face by a complete stranger in the Franklin Avenue Subway Station. The boy was in the station on Nov. 20 at about 3:20 p.m. when he was attacked. At about the same time, a 15-year-old boy said that someone he’d never seen before threatened him and said that “the next time he sees him, he’s going to ‘kick his ass,’” according to police reports.

The reports did not indicate whether the two victims were together or suggest a motivation for either incident. This is the fourth attack in the Franklin Avenue Station since the beginning of November.
