Police ketchup with alleged South Station McVandal
MBTA Transit Police report they've nabbed the guy who allegedly destroyed a $3,000 cash register at the South Station McDonald's, possibly in a snit over it being closed when he wanted to buy something.
Timothy Chace, 28, of Dorchester, was arrested on a charge of malicious destruction of property with the aid of people who recognized his photo from a wanted poster, police say.
More specifically, somebody called police and told them where he worked, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports:
Transit Police detectives visited the Waterfront restaurant where Chace was said to have worked, only to learn that he was no longer employed there. Using personnel information, however, detectives obtained an address linked with the suspect. A relative at that address agreed to have Chace contact investigators when they next spoke.
Chace surrendered himself at MBTA Transit Police headquarters on Massachusetts shortly after noon, the DA's office says.
Chace's bail was set at $200 at his arraignment in Boston Municipal Court today, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports, adding he was ordered to stay away from South Station while his case is pending.
