At about 3:15 PM on December 28, 2020, officers assigned to District A-1 (Downtown), responded to a radio call for a person in the area of Bulfinch Place and New Chardon Street, attempting to gain entry into parked motor vehicles by pulling on door handles.

Upon arrival, officers observed the male, later identified as Robert Snyder, 51, of Boston sitting inside one of the parked motor vehicles. After further investigation it was revealed that the motor vehicle did not belong to the suspect and he did not know the registered owner.

Robert Snyder was arrested and charged with Breaking & Entering a Motor Vehicle (Daytime). He is expected to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court.
