Boston Police badge

Police are looking for a man with an eye patch who reportedly made off with $ 600 from a South End Metro PCS on Tuesday. 

Boston Police Officers responded to a robbery in progress at 776 Tremont Street at about 3:35 p.m. on June 18.

The store’s clerk told police she buzzed the suspect into the store because she recognized him from prior business. However, she said the suspect walked into the store with his hand in his pocket and told the clerk to give him money and not look at him.

The victim took out about $ 600 and handed it to the suspect. The suspect told the victim to stop looking at him and get on the ground as he fled out the door, onto Tremont Street in an unknown direction.

The only description given to police was that the man was wearing an eye patch. Police are still on the lookout for the suspect.

FBI: We Know Who Robbed the Gardner Museum

Rembrandt's: The Storm on the Sea of Galilee

FBI officials announced today they know who committed one of the biggest art heists in history, but they still need the public’s help to locate the 13 missing pieces of art. 

“The FBI believes with a high degree of confidence in the years after the theft the art was transported to Connecticut and the Philadelphia region and some of the art was taken to Philadelphia where it was offered for sale by those responsible for the theft,”  said Richard DesLauriers, Special Agent in Charge of the Boston FBI office. “With that same confidence we have identified the thieves who are members of a criminal organization with a base in the mid-Atlantic states and New England.” 

Officials believe the art was smuggled into Connecticut and eventually made its way into Philadelphia. At that point, the trail for the missing masterpieces goes cold. The FBI believes an organized-crime organization based in the mid-Atlantic states coordinated the crime. read more
