Transit Police report arresting a Boston man on a larceny charge this morning after finding him with a bottle of prescription pills belonging to a man who had been found dead at the Downtown Crossing Red Line station.
According to police, Anthony Stimson, 30, saw the man lying on the southbound platform, unconscious, and "rummaged through his belongings and person and stole items from him to include the victim's prescriptions." He then fled without attempting to summon help for the man.
Around 5 a.m., Transit Police officers responded to a report about the 52-year-old man and began CPR, but neither they nor arriving EMTs were able to revive him.
Officers found Stimson on Summer Street, where he was arrested.
