Tremont Street suspect

Nicole Chan posted photos of this guy, who was snooping around her Tremont Street business around 2:30 p.m. yesterday, looking for stuff to lift.

He's lucky he escaped. Chan's business is Trapology, in which people pay to be locked into a room, then try to escape, using clues and puzzle solving to figure a way out.

George Dagraca, 43, died this past Thursday. Somebody set up a memorial for him where he used to sit, along the burying-ground fence. Read more.
