James Schaff

The Beacon Hill Times reports four successful break-ins and one failed attempt this past weekend along Charles Street; quotes one business owner who no longer feels safe on the street after moving there from Newbury Street.

Boston Police report arresting a Boston man on charges he broke into Flat of the Hill, 60 Charles St., shortly before 12:30 a.m. today.

Officers were provided a description of a suspect who had broken into a business, and was fleeing the area.

Officers observed a suspect matching the description walking on Charles Street. As officers approached the suspect, he attempted to walk away from the area. Officers were able to speak with the suspect, and immediately handcuffed him.

So we all know banks and creditor institutions run what happens around us. Does the SBA have any top level movers and shakers who can do something to stop the out of control crime population who are ruining the dream of running a small busuness? It's not just this guy. It's the loitering, littering, shoplifting, pissing, shitting, vomiting, robbing, verbal abuse, threats, gun and knife holdups. Etc, drug dealing, drug using, that is freely happening.
