A dying man from Everett who apparently stole a boat for his last hurrah has now been charged in Chelsea District Court after apparently selling the boat to a yacht club in Lynn.

A Revere resident came to the police station on Friday afternoon to report that his boat had fallen into the wrong hands.

The man told police that the small, $1,500 boat had been stolen from his property sometime in June. A few days after it went missing, the victim said the suspect called him out of the blue to tell him he stole the boat. The suspect reported that he wasn’t feeling well and was dying and took the boat as a last hurrah – so as he could take his nephew out on the water before his ultimate demise.

So be it.

However, the suspect still hadn’t returned the boat, and he hadn’t yet passed away either.

A source told the victim that the boat was in Lynn and had been sold to a Lynn yacht club. Police did a cursory investigation on the Sail Number and found it in Lynn. They were able to locate the suspect as well, and he has been charged in Chelsea court.

A Thurlow Avenue man is facing charges ranging from counterfeiting $100 bills to possessing a quarter stick of dynamite after a traffic stop on Broadway yielded a very unique situation.

On Tuesday, Aug. 7, police pulled over the man at 8:30 p.m. when he was observed to have no rear lights. It was quickly determined that he was operating with a suspended license, and that the car wasn’t registered, it had attached plates that didn’t belong to the man, and the inspection sticker did not match the vehicle.

Officers searched the car and turned up what appeared to be 90 phony $100 bills.

A close look into the glove compartment found what appeared to be an explosive device. The State Police were called in to consult on the matter, and it was determined that it was a quarter stick of dynamite and such items are only considered to be an illegal firework despite their destructive nature.

A Parkway man unleashed a tirade of police last Friday afternoon when they pulled him over on Adams Street for running a stop sign.

Around 2:30 p.m., police were doing directed traffic enforcement on the stop sign at Cooledge and Adams streets, as people frequently blow through it.

While doing that, they observed a blue sedan come at a high rate of speed and turn left on Adams Street without stopping at all. Police executed a stop of the vehicle and the man wanted to know why he was stopped. That led to an argument and, on top of that, the man couldn’t locate his registration documents. After observing several other violations on the vehicle, the man became more aggravated and attempted to get out of the car. Police asked him to stay in the vehicle, and then he rolled down the window and began to push himself out the window.

He launched into a tirade at that point, screaming, swearing and yelling – attracting lots of attention from neighbors.

He was uncooperative and wouldn’t return to his car, so police arrested him.
