Police say one of the two North End robbers turned himself in; second captured not long after

Boston Police report that around 8:30 p.m., Richard Puopolo, 27, called police from Cleveland Place in the North End, looking to turn himself in for a series of convenience-store robberies over the weekend.

Police obliged, took him in and charged him with unarmed robbery, armed robbery and possession of Class E drugs.

Around 10:30 p.m, police say, officers on patrol in Chinatown noticed a guy who looked a lot like Puopolo's companion in the robberies. Carlos Venable, 43, was then arrested, police say.

Innocent, etc.

    These guys

    are most likely homeless. Wonder how they blew the $ ?

    Maybe Puopolo wanted a nice,warm cell,food,etc. for the holidays. Don't blame him, it's getting nasty outside.
