Two Connecticut teens charged with smashing into fancy Boylston Street boutique, stealing $14,000 worth of sunglasses, purses

Boston Police report arresting two teens from coastal Connecticut early this morning on charges they smashed their way into Bottega Venetta, 310 Boylston St., then tried to make off with 19 pairs of sunglasses and two purses with a retail value of more than $14,000.

Police said that when officers asked the two - one an 18-year-old from Stonington, the other an 18-year-old from Westbrook - about all the stuff they dropped on the sidewalk as the officers approached, the two replied that "someone had broken into the store and they went inside and took the items."

Believing that that someone was, in fact, the two teens, officers arrested them on charges of felony breaking and entering a building in the nighttime and larceny over $1,200, police say.

Attention Portland and Seattle mostly peaceful rioters...you definitely have been breaking the wrong windows.

Rioters? You mean CBP, right?

My realtor was in the Wall Of Moms and my childhood dentist, who was born in a Japanese internment camp, was out there every night, too. I consider them to be reliable sources of information about how Fake Cop Mercinary instigation was a nightly phenomenon.

Pediatric dentists are good people. If there's a shield wall being manned by pediatric dentists, I don't care WHAT agency is on the other side, they need to look long and hard in the mirror to try and figure out why they are getting up in the morning and making the world a worse place.

So they targeted quite well, but the execution was very amateurish.
Really, how much can you fence expensive purses and sunglasses for without exposing yourselves on eBay and craigslist? Ten percent of retail?

What does Hermès keep in the windows? Scarves are easily hidden.

What’s a “peaceful rioter” entail?

Once again, excellent work by the Boston Police when simply going to the scene, finding the break, suspects gone and keyholder notified, would have been more than adequate in today's climate. BPD went the extra mile and found the culprits and confronted them, something that could cost a career if things went bad. It was nice to see BPD quickly tally up the amount of last night's theft. On that note, do we have a comprehensive damage and theft estimate for the entire city after the peaceful protests and riots in Boston on May 31? I understand the amount of theft and destruction from that night alone is massive but hasn't been reported. The media should express at least some some curiosity and ask Walsh for the numbers, no matter how embarrassing, and ask why they've been concealed.

"Officers arrived in the area and immediately observed two males matching the description of the suspects near the corner of Boylston Street and Charles Street"

Extra mile--extra block!

I thought you were done pretending to be a cop? Someday someone's going to turn you in you fraud. Eh, Jimmy?

Why no names, they're not minors.

You can see their names. Are you a Stonington native and think you know them?

Yeah but why didn't you name them instead of identifying them as an 18-year-old from Stonington, the other an 18-year-old from Westbrook.

As implied by Adam's question, their identities would most likely only be of interest to readers who knew of them already. Personally, I don't know anyone who fits the descriptions, so learning their names doesn't add any value for me. If I did know someone who fit the descriptions, I would read the linked police report.

Hope that helps.

I realize it's not the main issue, and that people are generally allowed to travel, but I'm always curious why people ended up commiting these types of crimes so far from home.

Some people believe, for whatever reason, that there's a better chance of not being caught if committing the crime away from where they are likely to be "known."
