Boston, MA - Stolen Range Rover: On January 7 police responded to a radio call about a motor vehicle accident in Roslindale. When the police arrived, they found the Boston Fire service on the scene working around a 2006 Range Rover that had crashed into a stonewall at the location. The vehicle’s front right tyre was on the wall, dislodged from the axle. The suspect was in the driver’s seat and was being placed on a backboard by Boston firefighters. The airbag had been deployed. At that point, an officer checked the license plate of the car and learned the car was stolen from Brookline. An officer spoke with the paramedics, who said the suspect was coming around and had provided his name. It was not the same person to who the car was registered to. The paramedics told police that the suspect had told them he had taken heroin earlier in the evening. Paramedics administered a drug to the suspect to counter the effects of the heroin. Boston Police escorted the ambulance to the hospital while other officers waited for a tow truck.
Police learned that the suspect had a revoked licence through a background check. Boston Police contacted Brookline Police to let them know about the stolen car, and the car was towed to the Brookline Police Department. Thomas P. O’Malley, from Fall River, was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license, operating under the influence of drugs, possession of a class A drug and receiving a stolen motor vehicle. The suspect was also issued driving citations for operating a motor vehicle after having a revoked license, operating under the influence of drugs and possession of a class A drug.
Pennsylvania - Green Range Rover: A teller at the Westmoreland Community Federal Credit Union in Hempfield Township was shot at the building on Georges Station Road, just outside Greensburg. State police said the robbery involved two men, one inside, who shot the teller, and another outside. Police said the teller was shot once in the torso. The woman who has not been identified was said to be in stable condition at UPMC Presbyterian. Police said the men got away with an undisclosed amount of money and fled to a cemetery in New Alexandria. FBI, state and local police searched all night for the two men. The search led police on Friday to arrest Lamont Laprade, 33, of Huntington, W.Va., and seize a green Range Rover sport utility vehicle that authorities said they believed was involved in the credit union robbery. Authorities said Mathis managed to coerce a local resident to drive him to the mall so he could buy new clothes and shoes to replace his soaked clothes. Police said since he was on the run, Mathis became frostbitten. The FBI said the person who took Mathis to the mall called police. We believe that they knew who he was and felt threatened and so they provided assistance," FBI Special Agent David Hedges said. Mathis, 45, of Crafton, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Pittsburgh. Authorities declined to say which man they believe was the alleged gunman.
