SUSPECT HIDING IN PORT-O-JOHN BEHIND TD GARDEN
At around 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 27, Massachusetts State Police were notified that Revere Police were pursuing a 2003 Cadillac Deville with New Hampshire plates on Route 1 South towards Boston. The vehicle was wanted in connection with the unarmed robbery of the East Boston Savings Bank on Squire Road in Revere.
During the pursuit, Revere Police were advised over the radio that the suspect vehicle crashed near the Nashua Street Jail and Science Park and that the suspect fled on foot. Numerous State Police patrols from Troops A, H and E, as well as MSP K9 units, assisted in the search. Troopers and an MSP K9 Unit located the suspect at 1:26 p.m. trying to hide in a portable toilet under an off-ramp from Route 93 near the TD Garden.
Troopers turned the suspect over to Revere Police for booking.
Revere Police said the suspect entered the bank and passed a note demanding cash. He made away with about $1,000 cash, but attracted the attention of bank employees outside when a dye=pack exploded. Those employees were able to alert police and send a good description.
Revere Police immediately found the man and pursued him to Boston, where he was caught.
The suspect is identified as Steven Spolidoro, 41, of Woburn. He was arraigned in Chelsea District Court and many charges.
