Advice to pregnant women: Don't use a stolen ID when checking into the hospital
Cambridge Police report that Cambridge Hospital officials called them when a pregnant woman tried using a stolen ID around 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday (no word if she was in labor). When police arrived, they found the car her male acquaintance had used to drive her there had been stolen - and was loaded with "ten stolen pocketbooks and several personal identifications from victims of car breaks from Danvers to Weymouth." Both will now face charges.
Police also report that around 10 a.m. on Monday, a guy who started complaining when some dude in a Civic cut him off at Somerville Avenue and Beacon Street found himself being flashed a badge and a State Police patch and ordered to pull over by the Civic driver. Police say the guy refused to comply because he doubted the alleged trooper was a real trooper (honestly: Would a trooper drive a Civic?). The alleged trooper then sped off.
Cambridge Police also report a man was held up on Allston Street around 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday by two teens in brown hoodies, one of whom flashed a knife and demanded "everything he had."
