Despite taking some precautions in the hand-to-hand sale of a computer, one woman was still robbed of her computer that was for sale when she met a potential buyer in the Target parking lot.

On Weds., Feb. 15, the woman had received a message from a potential buyer of her MacBook Laptop via the app ‘OfferUp.’ They agreed to meet in the daytime in the parking lot of the Target store.

She brought her boyfriend with her and made sure she was in a very public area of the lot.

When the buyer pulled up in a van, the woman passed the computer over to him so he could examine it.

He drove off with it.

So much for precautions.

The woman and her boyfriend were only able to get a partial license plate on the van, and police are following up.

“The woman did some good things here with making the transaction in the day, in a public place and with another person,” said Lt. Amy O’Hara. “However, another precaution would have been to make the transactions inside at a coffee shop.”



As the snowstorm wound down last Monday, Feb. 13, one man found a young man wearing only his socks and beaten up standing at his door.

The knocking got the man’s attention, and he called police when he found the 23-year-old wearing his socks and standing in the snow outside on Abruzzi Street.

Police responded and found the young man to be heavily intoxicated and he had been beaten in the face.

He was transported to the hospital by ambulance and police are investigating the assault.



One Charlestown man was befuddled by a snow bank after allegedly breaking into cars in the Target parking lot and then trying to make a getaway in the family vehicle – but hitting a snow bank instead.

When police arrived, they found the suspect in the back of Target frantically trying to shovel the vehicle out of the snow. Officers took him into custody shortly after.

The reporting party told police he was coming out of Stop & Shop when he saw the suspect rummaging through his vehicle. When he realized the suspect had stolen items out of the vehicle, he called police and began to follow the suspect.

The suspect jumped into the family car and made his getaway, only to crash into the snow behind Target.

Through an investigation, police learned the suspect broke into three cars, and several items were located.

Abas Bilal, 22, of Charlestown, was charged with operating after license was suspended and three counts of breaking and entering into a vehicle at night.



Police were called to the Rumney Marsh Academy on Feb. 6 for a possible knife being used to make threats.

After an investigation, police determined there wasn’t a knife and the so-called weapon did not fit the definition of a dangerous weapon.

The issue is being addressed by school administrators immediately. This issue at hand is a violation of school rules, but will be set up for a Clerk’s Hearing in Chelsea District Court. The investigation remains open.
