Beacon Street shut when cops discover rental truck with no plates just sitting on bridge over turnpike

Beacon Street between Audubon Circle and Kenmore Square was shut to both vehicles and pedestrians for about 30 minutes this afternoon so police could examine a Budget truck that was parked on the bridge over the turnpike without any license plates. After examining the truck and determining there was nothing threatening, police re-opened the street around 3 p.m.
