A 17-year-old Arlington teen who lives on Highland Avenue was arrested at about 11 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, and charged with breaking and entering at night with intent to commit a felony and receiving stolen property under $250.
Police believe Henry-Thomas Y. Smith stole a laptop computer, three Red Sox tickets and a checkbook from a car on Highland Avenue the previous night.
Police took a juvenile into protective custody Thursday night who allegedly had a briefcase from the car on him. The juvenile then told police that Smith was responsible for the break-in, and police later located the tickets and checkbook in Smith’s possession.
Smith said the juvenile was the one who broke into the car. Police are also seeking a criminal complaint against the juvenile for receiving stolen property under $250.
