Sgt. Luke Taxter at District D-4 reports that late Sunday or early Monday, somebody broke into a '95 Taurus parked on Ipswich Street in the Fenway and stole the owner's manual - but didn't take a GPS or phone that were also in the car.
The Boston Licensing Board last week decided that Fenway Park was not to blame for a fan falling two stories down an elevator shaft after a May game and that the Green Dragon near Faneuil Hall was equally blameless for the death of a man due to an apparent heroin overdose in its men's room.
After hearings on both matters, the board ruled "no violation" in both cases.

Around 7:30, Dan Berlin reported an unusual sight on the turnpike westbound:
Anyone else in Boston see the four people happily riding their Hubway bikes ON THE MASS PIKE?! Yikes.
In e-mail, he explains they look like they got on at Mass. Ave. They were riding in the breakdown lane, at least, he says:
Extra big breakdown these days, thanks to construction. But definitely no breakdown as they approach Cambridge. No helmets either
The Boston Licensing Board decides Thursday whether to take any action against Fenway Park for a May 16 incident in which a woman celebrating her graduation from Boston University suffered serious head injuries in a fall down an elevator shaft.
After the incident, police cited Fenway for her injuries and for allegedly overserving her.
The Boston Licensing Board today ordered Jerry Remy's on Boylston Street to shut for a day as punishment for an incident in which a worker helped somebody under 21 get a draft Coors Light.
Unfortunately for Remy's, a Boston Police detective was conducting an unscheduled inspection and noticed the young-faced patron - two months after a similar incident in which pretty much the same thing happened.
In both cases, the bartender didn't ask for ID after the worker vouched for the customer, police said.
UPDATE: One-day suspension ordered.
Officials from Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grille told the Boston Licensing Board today they're cracking down on employees after getting cited for the second time in two months for underage patrons getting drinks because they were friends with workers at the Fenway restaurant.
An incident on June 17, in which BPD detectives on a routine inspection found somebody with a drink who shouldn't have had one mirrored a similar occurrence on April 4 at the Boylston Street outlet.

The Boston Licensing Board ordered the penalty last week for a May 22 incident sparked by a hothead being pushed out of the bar after being ejected earlier in the evening and a woman who had no connection to him who decided to give bouncers a piece of her mind.
Elmowho posted three photos from an incident at Park Drive and Queensberry in the Fenway last night.
Police, a patron and bar employees gave differing explanations today for how a Cask 'n Flagon customer wound up unconscious on the sidewalk, blood pouring out of the back of his head, at closing time on May 22.
At a Boston Licensing Board hearing, however, all agreed the action started with a man being ejected from the bar for the second time that night and a woman who had nothing to do with him who loudly objected to his treatment.

Boston Restaurant Talk reports the demise of Sal's on Brookline Avenue.
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.

Stuck in the cluster that is the Muddy River work in front of Landmark Center today, roving UHub photographer Brian had plenty of time to observe Half Naked Santa Guy, who has been jauntily jaunting about the Boston area for years now, at least, in warmer weather.
An arbitrator recently ruled that an MBTA bus driver kept telling such dramatically different stories about how her bus came to hit a BTD supervisor and several parked cars in Kenmore Square that the T was within its rights to fire her.
The T fired Lataria Milton not long after the Aug. 9, 2012 incident, in which Milton's bus hit the supervisor and the cars after, police said at the time, the supervisor had told Milton to move it because it was blocking a turn lane in the busy square.
For $200 a night, guests will get to stay in rooms decorated with old Phoenix covers (contributed by Stephen Mindich himself):
Theyâ€™ll also see a grittier Fenway/Kenmore area, a place where Burger King and the Pizza Pad were considered gourmet restaurants, and punks and Sox fans sometimes brawled on the sidewalks.
Oh, the name comes from "reverb."
Boston Magazine reports on the crash this morning.
