Boston Police Investigate High School Breaking and Entering in Mattapan
At about 5:00 pm on Sunday, November 18, 2012, officers from District B-3 (Mattapan) in the area of 100 Maxwell Street were approached by the custodian of the Boston International High School. The custodian reported a breaking and entering in progress at the Boston International High School.
The custodian stated that he responded to the school for an alarm call. Upon resetting the alarm it started to go off again. The custodian further reported that when he walked back to reset the alarm again observed a black bag and a black coat at the bottom of the back stair way in the basement. He also observed broken glass to several of the classroom doors.
Officers searched the building and observed numerous classroom windows broken and several computers, chargers and cords stacked in a manner that would suggest the suspect/s were planning to take them. While the officers cleared the building they observed two recently cooked ‘Hot Pockets’ in a classroom where the computers were stacked. The Hot Pockets were still warm. After a complete search of the building, no suspects were located.
A short time later, officers were called back to the Boston International High School and meet with the headmaster, who reported that several MacBook Pro computers and LCD projectors were missing from the school. Several offices had also been broke into and items vandalized.
The Boston Police Department is actively investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding these incidents. Anyone with information is encouraged to call District B-3 Detectives (617)-343-4712
