Two adults, three teens arrested in connection with investigation into Hyde Park armed robberies, home invasions and carjackings
Boston Police report gang-unit officers looking for suspects for a series of violent crimes in Hyde Park arrested five people and seized three loaded guns outside the Hyde Park Avenue 7-Eleven early Tuesday morning.
Police add their investigation into the string of crimes, which included a stakeout on Lexington Avenue near River Street, is continuing.
Police say officers spotted three cars matching the description of cars linked to armed robberies, carjackings and home invasions sitting outside 1187 Hyde Park Ave. around 6 a.m.
Detectives made contact with the occupants, and after further investigation, officers arrested five individuals and recovered three firearms. The firearms were determined to be a Smith and Wesson 9mm with ten rounds in the magazine stolen out of New Hampshire, a Ghost Gun with fourteen rounds in the magazine, and a Ruger 9mm loaded with one round in the chamber, and fourteen in the magazine.
Angelica Pena, 18, of Hyde Park was charged with home invasion on a warrant out of West Roxbury court. Johan Ortega-Nunez, 20, of Dorchester, was arrested on a warrant out of Dorchester court on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, vandalism and thefts, and was also arrested on new charges of armed robbery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (firearm) and kidnapping, police say.
A 15-year-old, too young to be publicly identified, was charged with being delinquent for unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, armed robbery, carjacking assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (firearm) and kidnapping.
A 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, both too young to be publicly identified, were each charged with being delinquent for unlawful possession of a high-capacity firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carjacking, armed robbery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (firearm) and kidnapping.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
modding yer squirt gun with sum cushy chewing' gum now that's what a baddie do!
Do other gangstuhs give you a hard time when it's not clear if your gun says diamond boys or diamond boss?
So BPD doesn't only arrest
So BPD doesn't only arrest people who disagree with the City Hall.
Who decides what the acceptable protocol is for releasing a juvenile suspect’s name to the public? Is there a law on the books or is it up to the individual publisher of the medium?
It's the law
I'm not just sitting here using my powerful powers of power deciding whom to name. Aside from murder and a few other crimes, names of suspects 17 and under are legally supposed to be withheld.
The police don't release the name
Makes printing the juvenile's name moot.
One of the reasons why we have a juvenile justice system. In addition to the law, these kids are still presumed to be innocent and we all know that the internet is forever. Future employers doing a background check could see this arrest and prejudice their decision.
Good work bpd
Thanks for catching these criminals !
