At about 12:30 PM on Friday October 21, 2021, detectives assigned to District C-11 (Dorchester) and District D-14 (Brighton) arrested Juan Marte-Nunez, 35, of Roxbury following the simultaneous execution of an arrest warrant and a search warrant in the area of 485 Geneva Avenue in Dorchester.

The warrants were applied for and granted following a lengthy investigation in relation to several incidents of shoplifting, larceny and residential break-ins which later resulted in stolen items being resold at the address above. It is believed that the total value of the stolen property is greater than half a million dollars.

The suspect will appear in Dorchester District Court on charges of Conspiracy (5 Counts), Receiving Stolen Property (7 Counts) and Aggravated Shoplifting (3 Counts). These charges may be amended or upgraded upon further investigation.
