Boston Police report officers investigating a break-in at a Back Bay convenience store early Sunday morning "noticed a chair, tucked in the corner behind the register, slightly move."
So they moved the chair, inside the Quality Mart, 21 Mass. Ave., some more and found Michael Galloway, 42, of Milton, behind it - along with "a pair of gloves, a black and yellow handled screw driver and a black bag [and] two 1.75 liter bottles of gray goose, 27 boxes of Newport cigarettes and 3 men’s Speed Stick deodorant sticks."
Coupled with the shattered glass all over the floor from the store's front door, that was good enough to put Galloway under arrest for breaking or entering a building or ship, intent to commit a felony and, of course, possession of burglarious tools.
Later, police say, officers matched the car keys they found on Galloway with an Accord parked in front of a hydrant by the store - inside of which they found "a brown box containing an orange container and a white trash bag full of scratch tickets."
Officers returned the vodka, ciggies, deodorant and scratch ticket to the store; they kept the screwdriver and gloves as evidence.
