A man wanted across eastern Massachusetts for a variety of crimes - including attacking a Boston cop - was arrested in Concord last week for allegedly stealing expensive eyeglass frames from a health center.
Steven Stanley, 44, of Weymouth, faces charges of larceny over $250 in Concord, Burlington, Braintree, Natick, Randolph and Wrentham. He faces three warrants in Boston for larceny over $250, in addition to a charge of assault and battery on a police officer. Natick also wants him for assault and battery.
Concord Police report somebody stole some expensive frames from the Harvard Vanguard center on Baker Street on Thursday. The next day, reports came in from two optometry shops - in Acton and Concord - of two men "acting suspiciously" before employees kicked them out.
Two Concord Detectives then located a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle. Inside were the two individuals fitting the description of the suspects outlined in the radio broadcast.
Police determined that one of the suspects, Stanley, was the man involved in the eyeglass frame larceny from Concord on Jan. 8. He was arrested and transported to the Concord police station.
