Two Suspects Charged with Breaking and Entering into Vehicles in West Roxbury

The suspects told police they were canvassing the Pomfret Street area for one of the suspect's ID. The following info is provided by the Boston Police, and where charges are mentioned it does not indicate a conviction.


Boston Police caught two suspects with lots of change, a credit card, gas cards and more - and charged the duo with breaking and entering into cars in West Roxbury.

On Oct. 22 around 5:05 a.m., Terance Curran, of 39 Whiting Ave., Dedham, and Brian Murray, of 31 Zeller St., Roslindale, were both arrested and charged with larceny breaking and entering into motor vehicles and receiving stolen property.

Police were dispatched to Pomfret Street for a call of two males checking car door handles. An officer found the two males matching the descriptions walking on Corey Street towards Centre Street, according to a Boston Police report.

Officers stopped the suspects and asked them what they were doing in the area. The suspects alleged they were backtracking for one of the suspect's IDs from his Zeller Street home. An officer calculated Zeller Street was more than a mile away, whlie the suspects insisted it was down the road (check the map on this article to see the two locations).

Then the suspects told police they were at a friend's house on Augustus Avenue in Roslindale, once again far away from where they were located. Police believed neither suspect was providing a viable reason for being in the area at 5 a.m.

While speaking with the suspects, the 911 caller approached police and identified the suspects as the pair he or she saw checking car door handles.

Officers performed a pat frisk of the two suspects and found their jackets to be "weighed down with loose change." Officers were also aware of multiple car break-ins during the past few evenings.

One of the suspects was also in possession of a hypodermic needle, and officers found a drivers license, credit card, two gas cards, all belonging to a victim, and debit card belonging to a second victim.

Police spoke with a victim who said his license and credit cards had been in his wallet in vehicle, which had been broken into.

Good! My cell phone "disappeared" a few weeks back after I was certain I had left it in the car (OK I was stupid to do that.) We finally decided that it must have been stolen since our car had already been rifled through, about 6 months back. Special thanks to the eagle-eye neighbor who spotted these guys.
