Boston Police report arresting a local teen on charges he used a rock around 1 a.m. today to smash the drive-in window at the Dunkin' Donuts at 4610 Washington St. - the one near West Roxbury Parkway - and then stole unspecified stuff.
Unlike the larger Dunkin' Donuts at the other end of Washington Street, which is open 24 hours, this kiosk-like outlet is only open until 9 p.m.
Police say arriving officers spotted Nestor Reyes, 18, behind the donut place and caught up with him after a brief chase through the thick underbrush.
Reyes was charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony, police say.

This type of signal phasing is widely used throughout the country. BTD is in the process of converting signals to this type of phasing where feasible as it allows for more time when pedestrians are allowed to cross.
